SAHDA – Quarterly Newsletter


SAHDA is the quarterly newsletter which is free to all MEDA members. It is published in January, April, July and October on the 1st of each month. Every current member receives an electronic copy of the publication through their MemberPlanet account.

Information in SAHDA is comprised of educational articles that are deemed to be of interest to our members, including topics such as dance, music, events & reviews, costuming and history. Themes and topics are also reflected and supported through our YouTube channel, with new playlists being added in conjunction with the SAHDA publication.

We invite your contributions to and thoughts on our newsletter!
