The National Dance Society offers CAP as a service to dancers and dance educators who need independent, professional evaluation of their works. It is open to NDS and non-NDS members. Dance faculty seeking tenure/promotion may find these evaluation useful pieces in their dossier. Choreography may be submitted as research and the process of adjudication adds a level of objectivity.
