Introduction to DAAC
The Danish American Athletic Club (DAAC) was founded by a group of Danish immigrants in 1922 and is patterned after similar organizations in Denmark.
The objectives for which the DAAC is originally formed is to act as a center for preserving and uphold Danish culture in America through maintaining classes in the Danish language, gymnastics, folk dance and other cultural subjects as required or needed for the purpose of strengthening the bonds between residents of Danish descent in America. The objective is also to further expand the cultural relations with other Scandinavian ethnic groups in the United States and to act as a source of information in academic studies of the cultural impact of Danish immigration to the United States of America. Any person interested in the "objectives" of the DAAC are eligible for membership, but must be sponsored by a member in good standing.
