Conference Proceedings

NDEO compiles and publishes formal Conference Proceedings that include submitted full papers from sessions held during NDEO's annual National Conference.
The most recent Conference Proceedings contain multiple tables of contents, which allow readers to find papers and presentations with ease and efficiency. The Proceedings are listed in alphabetical order by lead presenter and/or author and also referenced by categories recognized in NDEO’s Dance Education Research Descriptive Index (DELRdi)-- Title, Educational Issue, Population Served, Areas of Service, and Full Papers. Documentation of the pedagogical methods and educational experiences from the conference is a critical component of sharing the legacy of dance education for the artists, dance educators, and students of the future.
Formal Conference Proceedings for 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 conferences are available free of charge below. Previous years proceedings are available via the NDEO Online Store to NDEO members for free and to non-members for $15.
