Virtual Professional Development (PD) Days


Join us July 15, 2022 for NDEO’s first Virtual Professional Development (PD) Day for Dance Teachers!

Following the success of our Virtual National Dance Education Conferences in 2020 and 2021, and in line with our commitment to Justice, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) is excited to announce our new Virtual Professional Development (PD) Days for Dance Teachers!

 In addition to our annual in-person NDEO Conference, this year we will be providing supplementary Virtual Professional Development Days as an accessible alternative for those who are not able to attend the in-person NDEO Conference in Atlanta, Georgia in October. These NDEO Virtual PD Days will also provide a quick and accessible learning opportunity for dance teachers seeking professional development in addition to attending this year’s in-person Conference.

There will be two separate Virtual Professional Development (PD) Days, one on Friday July 15, 2022 and the second on Saturday January 21, 2023. Each event will be unique with different sessions, featuring content from past virtual NDEO conferences and the upcoming 2022 National Conference.

Registration for Friday July 15, 2022 is now open!
