Specific Standards Reviews


Last Update: August 16, 2021

Specific Standards Reviews consider particular portions or elements of the standards, or new standards.

All draft proposals will be posted here as they are approved for public comment. Indications will be provided for each proposal regarding the type of review, the dates of comment periods, and whether the proposal is scheduled for hearings or for a final vote by the NASD membership.

Representatives of member institutions, students, dance professionals, accreditors, interested parties, and the general public are cordially invited to read and comment on standards drafts. Before you begin, please take time to read Reviewing and Commenting on NASD Standards. You may also find it helpful to review the Frequently Asked Questions.

Those wishing to comment are asked to note the contact and deadline information found on the cover page of the proposal. Although NASD will not be able to acknowledge every comment individually, the Association is grateful to those making specific suggestions. You need not comment if you think a text is satisfactory.
