Oregon Dance Education Organization serves as a vital voice and as a convening body for dance educators, and the dance community who live, learn, and/or work throughout the state of Oregon.

 *Oregon Dance Education Organization (ODEO) is a recently established state affiliate of the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO). ODEO members receive dual membership with NDEO. To become an ODEO member one must enroll through NDEO. Upon joining NDEO, Oregon residents are automatically enrolled in ODEO. Oregon residents who were members of NDEO prior to ODEO becoming an affiliate will be enrolled in ODEO upon renewal.
