The National Dance Education Organization (NDEO), located in Silver Spring, Maryland, was established in 1998 as a national non-profit organization supporting dance education and dance in the United States generally. Its background lies in the response to Title IX (1972), and the Equal Educational Opportunity Act (1974) and the changes to physical education and sports science leading to dance becoming more closely aligned to the performing arts. NDEO publishes "The Journal of Dance Education" (JODE) and supports regional activities. NDEO received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support state initiatives to develop and align state and local school district standards, curriculum frameworks, assessments, certification, teacher training, and more through developing 3 to 5 year State Plans.
