Current Registered Dance Educators



In order to maintain your RDE accreditation, you must maintain a current membership in NDEO, serve as a peer reviewer on new RDE applications when necessary, and submit annual documentation providing evidence of continued professional development in dance or dance education of at least 10 hours or 1 CEU. Professional development may include, but is not limited to, multi-day conferences, workshops, webinars, online or in-person courses, technique classes, presentations, or professional service to national/state task force committees. You must submit documentation of professional development via the online RDE Annual Professional Development Form by January 20th each year for the previous calendar year’s activities.


RDE Annual Professional Development Form available December 2017


Dance educators who had previously been awarded the RDE credential prior to NDEO taking over from Elsa Posey will be grandfathered into the program as long as they have a current NDEO membership. Going forward, they are required to complete Professional Development in 2017 and complete the RDE Annual Professional Development form by January 20, 2018. The professional development activities do not have to be hosted by NDEO, however, proof of activity will be required in the form of an uploaded document such as a receipt, schedule, letter, Certificate of Attendance, or CEU certificate.
