NDEO National College Dance Directory

The 
Directory highlights NDEO-member Higher Education Institutions (colleges and universities) that offer a dance minor, dance major, and/or dance education program. To date there are over 60 institutions listed in this directory along with institution and degree descriptions, website URLs, contact information, and social media links. In the future we hope to identify institutions that support a chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA). Continue to check back as this directory is updated regularly.


Schools must have a current NDEO Institutional Higher Education Membership in order to be listed in the NDEO National College Dance Directory. To sign up for this type of membership, click here.

Over the summer and fall of 2017, NDEO conducted internet research and spoke directly with school administrators and state boards of education in order to compile a list of higher education institutions (colleges and universities) that offer Pre-K dance education programs and certification.
