Support NDEO

At NDEO, we believe that “It All Starts With A Dance Teacher!” We have seen first hand how impactful a quality dance education can be for students, regardless of their gender, age, race or culture, socio-economic status, ability or interest. We know that dance teachers make that impact possible, and we exist to support those educators in their good work. Be sure to thank your dance teacher for the special role that they have played in your life, and “pay it forward” by donating to NDEO so that more teachers can benefit more students by providing them with a quality dance education. Help NDEO get closer to #DanceEducationforAll.
