Why NCDEO?

“I joined NDEO as a first year teacher. In my ninth year of teaching I contribute many parts of my dance program’s growth and my teaching to the networking and workshops I have attended as a member. NCDEO is an organizations that I feel will help continue the growth of dance education. It will facilitate the continued networking among st dance educators in turn to help nurture the next generation of dance educators.” – Kate Cummings, Millbrook High School

“I joined NDEO shortly after starting my career in dance education. The recent formation of NCDEO has opened the door for continued education and networking through their conference and other sponsored events. If you are a dance educator in the state of North Carolina you will greatly benefit from the membership to NCDEO.” – Angela Wentworth, Dance Educator at Richlands High School
