The National Dance Society Journal (NDSJ) is a juried annual publication that collects original reports of empirical studies, literature reviews, theoretical articles, applied research, methodological articles, case studies, and invited targeted articles. The journal articles are indexed in EBSCO and Cengage, Inc., two of the major search engines.

The mission of the NDSJ is to provide leadership in promoting quality dance experiences for students at all levels, across all ages, and for multiple personal dance interests ranging from social, cultural, community, and fitness/wellness reasons to challenging students to create, perform, and respond to artistic works for the stage.
