Join NDEO in Newport, Rhode Island, where jazz has come alive every summer since the first Newport Jazz Festival in 1954. Together, we will explore jazz dance from its roots to many contemporary offshoots while enjoying the beautiful facilities and views of our oceanfront host, Salve Regina University. Inspired by Jazz Dance: A History of the Roots and Branches (University of Florida Press: 2014), edited by Lindsay Guarino and Wendy Oliver, this conference will look at jazz dance broadly through movement workshops and conversations, inviting dialogue that connects the past, present, and future of jazz. 
 

Special Guest Presenters include Bob Boross, Danny Buraczeski, Thom Cobb, Moncell Durdon, Melanie George, Karen Hubbard, Darwin Prioleau, Billy Siegenfeld, and Sheron Wray
