Conference Poster Presentations

Connections, Knowledge, and Leadership:
October 4 - 7, 2018

NDEO invites poster proposals that focus on this year’s theme, Connections, Knowledge, and Leadership: A New Era in Dance Education. As you craft your proposal, we invite you to consider these questions:
  • Connection: In your teaching, how do you connect to your students with relevant, engaging practices that respond to differences in ability, socio-economic status, religious practices, body image, gender-identity, culture, etc.? How are you building connections with other dance programs across sectors, genres, geography, and cultures? How can we use dance as a vehicle to connect communities during shifts in economics, politics and demographics?
  • Knowledge: How do we expand and disseminate experiential, embodied, and scholarly research to reenvision how knowledge informed by dance can impact civic engagement, systems, and identity in a new era? 
  • Leadership: How do we model, grow, and develop leadership that inspires innovative programming, political engagement, and local/global advocacy while advancing dance as an art form?

Join NDEO for our 20th annual National Conference to advance the NDEO Priorities for Dance Education:

Conference 2018 Poster presenters will be notified of acceptance in early August.
