Madeleine LaChance is the president of the NDEO (National Dance Education Organization) at MacDuffie. Ms. Muzzy is their club leader, and the goal of the club is to advance dance education through the arts. They will be organizing activities throughout the year; for example, this year NDEO will be starting an introductory dance class to teach basic dance technique (primarily ballet). Anyone can join, and it’s going to be a lot of fun! They will also spread awareness of dance, raise money for local dance initiative or charity programs, and do some other fun things throughout the year.
In addition to this, NDEO also administers the NHSDA (National Honors Society of Dance Arts). This means that if you are devoted to actively dance participation at MacDuffie, you can be inducted into the NHSDA and graduate with honors. Several seniors were inducted last year, several more will be inducted this year, and it looks great on a college application!
