GARDEN CITY DANCE STUDIO is proud to announce we are a member of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts.
Establishing an NHSDA chapter in our school is one very important way that we can help advance the field of dance education. Celebrating the artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievements of our exceptional dance students helps to create honor and prestige within our field and improve our image to those outside the field, and offers benefits for students, institutions, and the field at large.
1. 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.
2. To foster an appreciation for dance as a true art form and one worthy of recognition and prestige.
⦁ Recognition of their artistic merit, academic achievement, and leadership throughout their educational experience (Junior High – Collegiate)
⦁ Certificates at each level of induction, opportunity to wear the gold Honor Pin and blue and white Honor Cord
⦁ Mentorship from Chapter Sponsor and networking with peers
⦁ Leadership and development opportunities within their NHSDA Chapter, as they can assist the Chapter Sponsor with Chapter administration, record keeping, fundraising, and event planning.
BENEFIT FOR THE FIELD OF DANCE ARTS EDUCATION
By recognizing outstanding dance students nationwide for their artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement and providing institutions with a way to promote their dance programs, NHSDA helps to advance the field of dance education centered in the arts.
