Ambassador Program

DDA is excited to announce our new ambassador program started in 2020. The DDA Ambassadors program showcases young performers that are nominated and chosen for exhibiting the core values of the competition’s cultural values: SHINE. Our Ambassadors are chosen based upon their exemplary leadership skills, giving back to their community, and shining bright every day.


S: Serve your community
H: Help those in need
I: Inspiring others
N: Noteworthy for kindness
E: Excellence in every action they take

At Diamond Dance Awards, we know the importance of giving back. Our directors, as well as our staff, believe one of the best ways to shine bright is to help others in need. We created this program for dancers with a little extra sparkle to represent Diamond Dance Awards. We are very honored to have chosen three 2020 Diamond Dance Ambassadors.
