Dance Education Organization

Welcome to the Dance Education Organization's Webpage!

Dance Education Organization (DEO) is a student-run organization that is a resource for the dance community within the department, the university, and the greater Tampa area. The purpose of the DEO is to serve future dance educators by providing a foundation through which they will have opportunities to attend and administrate workshops to participate in community outreach to be exposed to current research materials as well as an option to affiliate with the National Dance Education Organization.

DEO’s Goals are:

  • To educate the community about dance
  • To provide a link between USF dancers and the community
  • To create a feeling of unity throughout the USF Dance Department

To achieve these goals, DEO works to create and/or participate in several events and fundraisers.
