About Us



Mission Statement

The mission of our dance organization is to enrich the lives of our members and the surrounding community through the art of dance. We strive to increase awareness of dance through community engagement and various performances. Our organization enables students to enhance their dance educations by creating opportunities for further dance study, research, and performance on a global scale.


What We Do

Our NDEO WKU Student Chapter works to provide dance opportunities to members of our chapter and the WKU and Bowling Green communities. Each semester, we host multiple events both on and off campus to raise awareness of the art of dance. Exciting events such as children's dance camps, master classes with guest artists, international festivals, and many more allow us to give people of all ages chances to learn about and experience dance in fun new ways!


Who Can Join

Any student currently enrolled in at least one dance class through the Theatre and Dance Department of Western Kentucky University is eligible to join our NDEO Student Chapter! Please contact us at if you would like to take the first step to joining our chapter.

Member Benefits

As a member of this chapter, students gain valuable leadership experience while developing their own professional skills as well as servicing others. Our chapter has been able to help the WKU Dance Program bring in guest artists such as Victor Alexander of the Ruth Page Center for the Arts and Jim Cooney from Broadway Dance Center. Additionally, the NDEO WKU Student Chapter has awarded dance scholarships to members and supported student travel to the Tennessee Association of Dance Festival, American College Dance Festival, and Italy to study abroad! This organization offers a unique opportunity to develop teaching, creating, collaborating, and advocating skills while focusing on the beautiful art of dance!
