National Honor Society for Dance Arts!
We are thrilled to announce that the Lake Forest Dance Academy is now a chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts! This exciting program is available through the National Dance Education Organization and its' primary mission is to promote and honor outstanding achievement and encourage well-rounded dance artists to become leaders in their communities. Student induction into the NHSDA is awarded on the basis of points earned for meritorious work in dance. Other factors may include the following: cooperative teamwork, motivation, outreach, choreography, performance, teaching and production. Inductees receive a Certificate of Induction, added prestige in future scholarship applications and future resumes, and are eligible to apply for the NDEO Artistic Merit, Leadership and Academic Achievement Award. High school students will be able to apply for this program through us beginning January 2, 2012 and will be able to document past points earned during their high school career. Valerie Gonzalez is the chapter sponsor and she is happy to answer any of your questions regarding this worthy program. You may contact Valerie at 847-810-3948 or at firstname.lastname@example.org for information regarding chapter activities and policies or visit NDEO site for the National program.
