Published 11:26 am Thursday, March 17, 2011

The Dancer’s Extension in Saluda has been named as a chapter sponsor for the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) through the National Dance Education Organization (NDEO). The primary mission of the NHSDA is to promote and honor outstanding achievement in middle and high school level students for academic excellence, leadership and artistic merit. In addition, the NHSDA serves to identify those honor students of junior and senior high school age for nomination to the NDEO’s Artistic Merit, Leadership and Academic Achievement Award, the highest dance award in the nation. The Dancer’s Extension is one of only 200 NHSDA chapters recognized throughout the United States.

For young dance students, this program is an inspiration and a goal to strive towards. Current dance students who are at least 11 years of age may immediately begin working towards induction into the society. Inducted students may participate in special events throughout the area, list their achievement on resumes or college applications, be recognized at graduation ceremonies and compete for awards and scholarships.

Participation in the NHSDA enables the community to celebrate student achievement and dedication in the art of dance and it connects inductees to the community of dancers at the state and national levels.
