The National Honor Society for Dance Arts

The National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ (NHSDA) is in its second season. It is available for grades 9-12 (Freshmen to Senior) at Colorado Ballet Society. The goal of the NHSDA is to recognize dancers for their outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in the field of dance.

 

As a member of the NHSDA you will promote a desire for lifelong learning in the field of dance and encourage an understanding of, and an appreciation for, dance as an art form and develop knowledgeable audiences for tomorrow.
