Last week, Premier Dance Academy became an official chapter for the National Honor Society For Dance Arts (NHSDA) through the National Dance Educators Organization. We are proud and excited to offer this opportunity to our dancers in grades 6-8 (Junior Program) and dancers in grades 9-12 (Secondary Program).
Early last week, when I first received word that we had been accepted as a chapter in NHSDA, I took a few minutes at the end of class to tell our Premier I & II dancers about this new opportunity. They were excited to learn more, and seemed happy to know that the hours they put in at the studio will help them further their academic education.

Dancers who are inducted into NHSDA are encouraged to include NHSDA on their college applications and scholarship applications. NHSDA is only available to students who are enrolled at a dance studio or school with a NHSDA chapter. Induction into NHSDA is offered yearly; Premier's Induction will be held at our annual recital. For a small fee, dancers who are inducted into NHSDA will receive a gold pin and a cord, which can be worn at their high school graduation if the school administration gives permission.
