NHSDA Vision and Mission

Vision

We envision a nation in which all students have equal opportunity and access to quality dance arts education and are recognized for their outstanding artistic merit, leadership and academic achievement in the field of dance.

Mission

  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.

What are the benefits of the NHSDA and induction?

Students deserve the honor and prestige that comes from their achievement in dance. Many are working hard on academics and leadership while perfecting their dance craft not only at school but also outside of school. The personal gratification that students receive from being inducted into the NHSDA is a boost to their self-esteem.

All student inductees will receive an official certificate of induction from the NDEO State Affiliate or the NDEO home office. Inducted students who are seniors in high school are eligible to wear the NHSDA honor cord and gold pin during graduation ceremonies; however, separate approval from the principal or other school administrators may be necessary. Students are encouraged to cite their NHSDA induction in scholarship applications and/or resumes for college or dance employment.
