Cultivating Equity and Access: Dance Education for All
November 12-14, 2017

NDEO invites poster proposals that focus on this year’s theme, Cultivating Equity and Access: Dance Education for All. As you craft your proposal, we invite you to consider these questions: How do we define equity and access in dance? What are your best stories, both data-driven and heartfelt, of advancing equity and expanding access to dance education in your community, school, or program? What tools, strategies, methodologies, technologies, and approaches do we use? How do we make dance education inclusive of learners with different physical, cognitive, and social-emotional abilities? How have you addressed gender inequity or gender-bias, or increased access to dance for marginalized communities? How do we shift the role economics plays in preventing equitable access to dance? What role does the Every Student Succeeds Act (2015) play in cultivating equity and access in dance education to K-12 students? What are ways that we are expanding access that moves us forward as a field on the local, statewide, and national education stages? How can the private studio, higher education, performing arts organization, and K-12 sectors work together to improve dance education in their communities?
