The Essentiality of Dance Education in Changing Times

Call for Session Proposals - Submission Deadline is 4-1-21

NDEO 's National Conference is Going Virtual in 2021
Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, NDEO has made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person 2021 Annual National Conference, originally scheduled to take place in Bellevue, Washington in October. In its place, the Annual National Conference will be held virtually with the quality professional development and engaging networking opportunities that are a hallmark of an NDEO National Conference. We will be offering 4 full days of virtual sessions on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Call for Session Proposals
The last year has irrevocably changed the landscape of dance education. While the pandemic has challenged the ability to teach dance in familiar ways, we remain certain that dance education is essential to students’ physical, social, cognitive, and emotional health. As dance educators, we must not only continue to deliver the highest quality dance education under challenging conditions, but also stand up for our students and the value that dance education adds to their lives.

The 2021 NDEO Virtual National Conference, with the theme of Telling Our Stories: The Essentiality of Dance Education in Changing Times, will highlight the need to advocate for our field in these financially and socially difficult times. We will gather to explore stories of the power of dance education, how we tell those stories, who tells them, and how those stories have been shaped and changed over the last year.

We invite all dance educators interested in presenting at this virtual conference to submit applications for panels, paper presentations, movement sessions, and workshops for the 2021 conference. The deadline to submit a proposal is Thursday April 1, 2021.
The Proposal Submission Fee is $18 for current NDEO members and $40 for non-members and must be paid by the submission deadline of 4-1-21 or the proposal will not be considered.
