Dance teachers wear many hats. We are educators, choreographers, mentors, directors, artists, coaches, coordinators, decision-makers, advocates, and LEADERS. As dance educators, we may not always identify as leaders. We may think that only those with certain job titles, qualifications, or in select sectors qualify for this title. At NDEO’s 2023 National Conference, Teaching is Leading: Embracing Our Impact and Opportunity as Dance Educators, we invite you to explore the diverse ways you lead in the classroom, the studio, your communities, and elsewhere. Regardless of which setting we teach in or where we are in our career, dance teachers are constantly guiding, managing, developing, advocating, directing, creating, and communicating. We set the tone for our classes; we build relationships with students, parents, and administrators; we overcome obstacles for the sake of our programs; and we advocate for dance and demonstrate its tremendous impact through our teaching. This year in Denver we come together to explore and embrace our impact as leaders. Join us as we raise respect for the field of dance education and make the implicit explicit. If you are a dance teacher, you are a leader.
We invite all dance teachers to submit applications to present panels, paper presentations, movement sessions, and workshops at the 2023 NDEO National Conference. If you need guidance developing a session topic, we encourage you to consider the following questions:
