Welcome to the National Honor Society for Dance Arts

The National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ (NHSDA) is a program of the National Dance Education Organization, created 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. The NHSDA offers three levels of induction: The Junior Program for grades 6-8, The Secondary Program for grades 9-12, and The Collegiate Program for students in college or university dance programs. Establishing an NHSDA chapter in your school is one very important way that you can honor your students and help advance the field of dance education.


NHSDA at Studio B

We are thrilled to announce that Studio B is now a National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ Chapter! Pledges and inductees will earn society points through dance and their community involvement, as well as maintaining high academic standards. Pledges will earn honor cords for their graduations and will be able to have the honor on all college applications. In an effort to give back to the community, we will be opening this up to ALL dancers in the area who meet the requirements. This is not solely for Studio B members. We are thrilled to be a part of the NHSDA Society and More Than Just Great Dancing™.
