The South African Indian Dance Alliance is an organisation of dance practitioners and dance schools collaborating to elevate the quality and status of Indian classical and folk dance in South Africa.

The orgnisation was founded by Smeetha Maharaj in April 2016.

It aims to promote the skills of practitioners in the sphere of Indian dance, theatrical and musical activities and seeks to co-operate or affiliate with any other cultural, theatrical, dance or musical organizations with similar objectives.

The alliance is supported by luminaries in the dance field who form the core Advisory Panel.
