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 invite all dance educators interested in presenting at this virtual conference
