The National Dance Education Organization envisions a nation that affords every citizen equal access and opportunity to quality dance arts education regardless of gender, age, race or culture, socio-economic status, ability or interest.
NDEO members are diverse in age, gender, socioeconomic status, ability, ethnicity, and live in all 50 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and throughout the international community.
Held annually in the fall, a typical in-person NDEO National Conference includes 3 full days of over 250 workshops, master classes, panel and paper presentations, social events and performances.
NDEO's Online Professional Development Institute (OPDI)™ offers online dance education courses featuring pedagogy, teaching methods, history, assessments, research and much more.
The National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) recognizes outstanding dance students for their artistic merit, leadership, academic achievement, and helps institutions promote their dance programs.

"I joined NDEO to be connected to the latest in dance education and have access to good trainings. Our students have gained more knowledge from the knowledge we gained from NDEO which has made for a broader dance experience. Our favorite benefits are the journals of dance education and the online professional development institute. Each provide me with incredible and latest in dance trainings and research."
“NDEO has impacted me by giving so much opportunity. Opportunity to teach more, engage in the dance world more, live more if that makes sense. Right now my favorite benefits/programs are developing these new committees and prepare the way for generations to come. It's important to me because I didn't have these opportunities. So whatever I can do to help a young inspiring dancer better themselves for a long successful career, count me in."
"I joined NDEO for professional development and to network with my peers. My dance teacher's heart is filled with passion and commitment to dance each time I attend the national conference. I am inspired and edified by fellow dance educators. Many of us work in departments of one or two people, so coming together to share best practices and brainstorm ways to improve is priceless."
