"I joined NDEO in order to connect to other dance educators throughout the nation. I often felt like such an island, alone in my practice. I am so thankful for NDEO for providing the opportunity for dance educators to inspire, share, and learn from one another as well as lead us through programs such as Love Your Body Week, Dance a Difference, and Thank a Dance Teacher Day."
“NDEO offers so much information and helpful resources. There is a global collaboration and communications among international members. I like the online discussions and blogs, as well as the conferences and journals. These important resources help me find updated information in the field. I'm working on NDEO’s E-Communications committee and enjoy sharing dance education content."
"I encourage my dancers to attend college, and find a program that fits their unique situation and aspirations. NDEO is an excellent resource for promoting healthy dancing, finding the right college program, building community, and everything in between. As both my school and my students are young, I look forward to discovering all NDEO has to offer over the coming years."
