NDEO National Conference

Several NDEO members posing with excited faces in a hotel conference space.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. NDEO rotates sites throughout the United States each year; see upcoming conferences below for future sites and dates. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, NDEO National Conference was held virtually in 2020 in 2021.

Special Topic Conferences

NDEO Special Topic Conferences are regional events in which a small group of participants delves into a specific issue or area of concern or interest. Participants learn from experts in the subject matter, experience practice-based presentations from fellow dance education professionals, network with colleagues from their area, and often work to generate white paper reports about the issue at hand. Oftentimes, NDEO Special Topic Conferences initiate working groups that continue meeting and working long after the initial conference. Click here to view past Special Topic Conferences.
