Advocacy

Don’t Miss Your Chance to Give!

Dear NDEO member,

 

I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season. Here at NDEO, we value your membership and are working to ensure that you have the resources you need to make 2015 a successful year of teaching. As we approach the new year, it is my resolution to arm you with the best in professional development opportunities and advocacy tools.

 

It is for this reason that NDEO launched our first social action campaign in November and December of 2014 called, #ThankADanceTeacher. I am so pleased to report the campaign was successful in laying the groundwork to raise awareness for dance education globally. We had 125 participants pay homage to their dance teachers on social media and donate in honor or in memory of them. Collectively, we raised $2,846 in scholarship money, a 12% percent increase above our goal! The scholarship money will be applied to NDEO’s Online Professional Development Institute and fund dance teachers who wish to bring higher levels of training to their studios or schools, but cannot afford professional development.

 

As we approach the end of the year, many of you may be considering making end-of-the-year philanthropic gifts. Please consider the National Dance Education Organization, as your donations are fully tax deductible! There are only 3 days left for you to donate to the Thank A Dance Teacher Fund. Your gift of $100, $500, or $1,000 can make all the difference in helping build and sustain solid dance education programs in our nation’s universities, schools, and studios. Don’t miss your chance!  Let’s give back to the dance teachers who gave so much to us, by passing the mantel of excellence on to the next generation of dance educators.

 

To donate in recognition of your dance teacher, go to www.ndeo.org/NDEOthanks.

 

Thank you for all you do to make a difference in the classroom, studio, and world of dance!

 

Warmly,

Susan McGreevy-Nichols
