Worksheet to Help You Complete the Proposal Form

As NDEO convenes in Phoenix, we will tackle the multifaceted subject of artistic processes. The artistic processes we engage in as dance artists provide the foundation and structure through which we come to define, understand, evaluate, analyze, and create dance. These processes are innate in other disciplines and throughout everyday life: Scientists engage in them in research and experimentation; businesses utilize them to be innovative and competitive; and we all engage in artistic processes when we create a meal, select decor for our home, or write a letter. NDEO invites proposals for conference sessions that focus on this year’s theme: Engaging in the Artistic Processes!

  • How do we define and use the artistic processes as artists, practitioners, and educators?
  • How do we combine the artistic processes to express our ideas and intent, and to bring meaning to dance?
  • What are different approaches to using the artistic processes in dance education?
  • How do we use the artistic processes to teach dance technique, choreography, and theory?
  • How can we help our students understand and engage in these processes as performers, choreographers, collaborators, and dance enthusiasts?
  • What tools and methodologies do we use to teach these processes, and how do we investigate, develop, and find new tools?
  • How does standards-based dance education help us to teach these processes more effectively?
  • How do the artistic processes in dance relate to other artistic and academic disciplines?
