The National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA)
Live Love Dance is proud to be a Chapter Sponsor of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts through NDEO (National Dance Education Organization).
National Honor Society of Dance Arts Mission
To recognize outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in students studying dance in public and private schools in K-12 education, dance studios, cultural/community centers, performing arts organizations, and post-secondary education.
To foster an appreciation for dance as a true art form and one worthy of recognition and prestige.
Being a part of an NHSDA chapter in your school is one very important way that you can help advance the field of dance education. Celebrating the artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievements of exceptional dance students helps to create honor and prestige within our field and improve our image to those outside the field and offer benefits for students, institutions, and the field at large.
Recognition of their artistic merit, dance studies, and community service.
Certificates at induction and the opportunity to wear the gold Honor Pin and blue and white Honor Cord at graduation (some schools may require approval to do so). Notation on your school transcripts (must get approval from your school to do so.)
