NDEO members are diverse in age, gender, socioeconomic status, ability and ethnicity and live in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and throughout the international community. With diverse backgrounds and interests, NDEO members create a rich community of individuals and institutions dedicated to advancing dance education centered in the arts.

NDEO is a member-driven organization. Members vote, hold office, develop world-class publications, serve on national task force committees, develop student and teacher standards and assessments, choreograph, teach dance and academics, administer dance programs, do research, and a host of other professional activities.
To a large extent, members determine the future directions of the organization - and importantly, they make systemic change in the United States in dance education.
