National Honor Society for Dance Arts
The primary mission of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) is to promote and honor outstanding dance achievement in Avon High School Dancers. Further, NHSDA hopes to encourage well-rounded dance artists to become leaders in their communities after high school graduation.
Student membership in the NHSDA is awarded on the basis of points earned for meritorious work in dance that meet the honor society's general guidlines and overall grade point average. In addition, the prospective member's demonstration of collaborative teamwork, motivation, and participation in the many aspects of dance (choregraphy, performance, teaching, productions, etc) is a factor in the determination of eligibility for membership.
The National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) serves to identify those honor students of junior and senior high school age for nomiation to the National Dance Education Organization's (NDEO) Artistic Merit, Leadership and Academic Achievement Award, the highest dance award in the nation.
NHSDA meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month in the Dance Room (G115).
