Your member profile on the CDA website

Dear CADA Members,

For those who may not know who I am, allow me to introduce myself. My name is Ericka Wagner and I am the Membership Coordinator at the Canadian Dance Assembly (CDA).

Did you know that the CDA has a Membership Directory listing on its website? Our Directory allows members to promote their work and we want to be sure that you have the information you need in order to keep your listing current. Within your personal listing you can include a bio, contact information, photos and even YouTube or Vimeo links to your work.

Activating and animating your listing is easy! Just visit our website, look for the login button on the top right of the page. (Or just click here) and follow the prompts to set up your directory. Voila! As your work or contact information changes so can your listing, you can log in at anytime to make amendments to your profile. If you forgot your username/password just click here.

But wait, did something go wrong? No worries! That is what I am here for. If the website does something unexpected, or any links do not show up properly, all you have to do is contact me at the office: 416-515-8444 or send me an email: I’ll make sure that everything runs smoothly and any problems get fixed.

My door is always open and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions about getting your profile started.

All the best!

Ericka Wagner
