Welcome to the Journal of Dance Education, also known as JODE. Our blind-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.
