American Dance Therapy Association (ADTA) Sessions
NDEO members who have registered and paid the full conference fee are eligible to attend ADTA sessions, however, they must fill out the ADTA Registration Form to RSVP. The form must be returned to ADTA, not NDEO. NDEO members who have only registered for a 1-day rate are not eligible for this ADTA option. ADTA pre-conference Intensives take place on Thursday and cost extra at $60 for a half-day session or $100 for a full day session. Regular ADTA conference sessions Friday-Sunday are free for NDEO registrants to attend, but they must RSVP for sessions using the Registration Form
To register: Complete this form, indicating that you are an NDEO member who has already registered and paid NDEO conference fee. Return the form and any payment (for Pre-Conference Intensives only) directly to ADTA, not to NDEO. Spaces in ADTA sessions are limited. To ensure yourself a spot, please register no later than July 15th. After that date, any remaining spots will be on a first come, first served basis.
Collaborations: A Mosaic of Possibilities
A mosaic is comprised of individually beautiful pieces that fit together to create a strong and impressive whole! The Chicago dance scene is fueled by artistic gems of all sizes and types providing rich opportunities to connect and excel. Chicago is home to Jazz and Tap legends, major Ballet enterprises, internationally recognized Modern companies, thriving independent artists, spectacular Ballroom, and a vast array of offerings from the World dance community. The Chicago Public Schools and Arts Education in Chicago are undergoing a metamorphosis that is nothing short of astounding. The new Cultural Plan for Chicago launched dialogue city-wide. Vision, leadership and true partnership will be highlighted as NDEO travels to Chicago to showcase teaching artists, dance educators, and support organizations who work together to reveal Collaborations: A Mosaic of Possibilities. Along with its many dance venues, this city by the lake is known for its exceptional architecture, museums, Higher Education institutions, Broadway in Chicago, restaurants and world-class shopping. The City of Big Shoulders is ready to welcome NDEO in 2014.
