The goal of this summit is to elevate the field of dance and disability and bring joy to all participants by creating pathways to dance performance and education careers for students and teachers with disabilities. 

We invite a wide range of contributions from NDEO members and others in the field of dance to investigate with us the multiple contexts of dance and disability, and their intersections in disability artistry, disability culture, disability justice, community dance, dance for the stage, K-12, Higher Ed, studio dance, competitive dance worlds, and more.
