"Thanks a million; you got the wheels turning for me again. Such a
different way to look at dance education. I love it. Thinking out of
the box once again. I appreciate your encouragement."
                             - E.H., College Professor
  
 
   
"This course is a way for me to deepen my knowledge and understanding of teaching dance effectively, and creating a program that has true value in the lives of my students."

                               - V.C., Private Studio Teacher
 
     
 
 
"I will tell anyone who will listen about this NDEO course!!
It's been very enlightening and inspirational."
                 - A.K., High School Dance Teacher
   
 
   
"This course has been very helpful in making me more aware of what other dance educators have found to be beneficial for different age and skill levels of students. I learned a lot in this course. MAny new things have already been changed within my curriculum, and there are many more changes to come."
                               - D.D., High School Dance Teacher
     
 
 
"I really like the luxury of working on assignments when I have
the time to do so. This factor works so well in my life. I can
look ahead at an upcoming module and plan study time around
what I have upcoming in the next week. My son and I even do
homework at the same time in the evenings. It has become a
wonderful time for connecting with each other. And that is a
fantastic thing when you have a teenager!!"
                                                                    
 
   
"This course bolstered my knowledge and confirmed that I was teaching the right things, in most cases. It gave me great ideas for online learning, use of videos, and written student responses to videos."
