It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year (Give Thanks to Your Dance Teacher!)

‘Tis the season to be thankful, right? Next Tuesday, December 1, the National Dance Organization kicks off “Thank a Dance Teacher Day.” It’s a social-media giving campaign that actually lasts the entire month of December—post a video or selfie (NDEO is calling it an “unselfie”) thanking your teacher and donate $10 toward every teacher you thank. Use the hashtag #ndeothanks. Your name and the name of your teacher will be added to a special NDEO donor registry page. See here for more details. Funds raised go toward NDEO’s professional development scholarships.

Need some inspiration for your #ndeothanks post? Check out this “Letter to My Dance Teacher,” posted earlier this month by Angela Santoro, a former studio dancer who’s now dancing in college.

Happy almost Thanksgiving!
