Join Us In-Person for the 2022 NDEO National Conference

NDEO invites dance educators to come together in person this October to spark creativity, embrace the joy of communal experience, and hold space for the myriad ways we have shifted as dancers, educators, choreographers, and humans as we’ve moved through the last few years.

We welcome you to take what you need and share what you can, supporting individual needs through community practice. Take your place at the crowded table, connecting with others to find joy in shared creation, process pain and loss, and leave with new perspectives that will help propel the field of dance education forward.

Held annually in the fall, a typical in-person NDEO National Conference includes three full days of over 250 workshops, master classes, panel and paper presentations, social events and performances. A full day of pre-conference intensives precedes the official start of conference. The full conference schedule is generally released online over the summer before that year's conference.

Dates: Saturday, October 29 - Monday, October 31, 2022 with a pre-conference Intensives on Friday, October 28

Location: Hyatt Regency Atlanta (GA)
