Welcome to the Journal of Dance Education, also known as JoDE. Our anonymously-reviewed publication presents the latest developments in dance education research and practice with the intent of assisting educators in their quest to remain current in the classroom. We present both scholarly and practical articles relevant to various populations within the dance community, including public schools K-12, private schools, private studios, higher education, and community education.

Topics within the journal include but are not limited to: training of dancers, curriculum, pedagogy, teaching methodology, best practices, standards, assessment, dance administration, collaboration, creativity, dance advocacy and social justice issues. JoDE has an international reach and has published articles by a variety of international and U.S. authors who have interesting research to share. Reading JoDE is an excellent way to stay abreast of dance education research and practice in the U.S. and abroad.

Online Access

On June 30, 2010, NDEO purchased JoDE from J. Michael Ryan Publishers, Inc.  The new publisher and fulfillment house for the JoDE is Routledge, Taylor and Francis.

Effective with Volume 20(2) - June 2020 - The Journal of Dance Education and Dance Education in Practice went fully online. This change impacts all future issues and volumes. We look forward to providing you with the same great content in a convenient online format, while reducing our environmental impact and ensuring the financial health of the organization. NDEO will no longer mail print copies of its two journals.

If you have questions about a missing volume or if you want to order an extra copy of a particular volume, please contact Taylor & Francis at 215-625-8900 x 771 or at
