The National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) is a membership driven organization. Members have a strong voice in its work and governance. NDEO's Board of Directors is a working board and requires expertise in specific roles that are integral to NDEO leadership, infrastructure, and long-term stability. The NDEO governance consists of Board of Directors, an Advisory Council, and a dedicated staff.

The Board of Directors provides leadership and assumes responsibilities for establishing and implementing duties relevant to policy-making, financial matters, and legislative issues. The Board of Directors consists of President, Secretary, Treasurer, and either President Elect or Past President, 6 board members, and the Executive Director. All Board members have voting rights.

The Advisory Council provides leadership and assumes responsibilities in specific areas of expertise and serve as chair of a complimentary committee. The current Advisor roles include Action and Accountability, Advocacy, Awards, Curriculum, Standards and Assessment, Dance and Disabilities, Dance Education in Practice (DEiP), Development, Journal of Dance Education (JoDE), E-communications, National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA), Research, State Affiliates, Student Initiatives and 2 student liaisons (Undergraduate and Graduate). Each Advisor works with a committee of volunteer members who assist in carrying out the duties of that position. Committee work provides additional opportunities to serve NDEO and the field while also providing training for future leaders. 

NDEO is for the members, by the members and of the members. Our members’ expertise and dedication invest in the future of dance education.
