The 18th Annual National Conference offers us a chance to raise our voices and move the field of dance education. Just weeks before the 2016 U.S. Presidential and Congressional Elections, NDEO welcomes dance educators from across the country and around the world to Washington, D.C. With the theme of “Speaking with Our Feet,” we will strategize and share ways to advocate for, analyze, and advance dance education in our schools, communities, states, and nations. We invite you to join us in the nation’s capital and share your stories of triumph and concern, your data danced and discovered, and your vision for the future of dance education. As the home of renowned artistic and cultural institutions, major university dance programs, a flourishing arts education policy and advocacy scene, and a network of dance companies and community programs, the DMV (as locals refer to the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia region) provides opportunities to see and be seen, to hear and be heard, and to move and be moved.
