National Honor Sociaety of Dance Induction Ceremony

Tweo dancers will be recognized and inducted as Dance Scholars in NHSDA: Leila Brickley & Clara Gvozdas (Juniors at WRHS). The induction ceremony will take place, Friday, February 9, 7:00 pm at the Community Campus, Hailey.

Recognizing: Outstanding artistic merit, leadership and academic achievements in students studying dance at the High School level. The National Dance Honor Society is part of the National Dance Educators Organization and is an approved student program from the Secondary School’s Principals (NASSP).  The WRHS chapter is one of over 300 chapters across the United States that supports excellence in the dance arts, academic achievement and leadership. Our WRHS faculty advisor is Angie Telford with Hilarie Neely, Director FDC, administering the program with 23 members from Footlight Dance Centre participating in this chapter.

Dancing is a year round artistic endeavor and passion for those working towards their NHSDA induction.  Dancers must maintain a solid GPA on top of the dance core work.  The requirements to be inducted and thus obtain the honor that can be recognized on transcripts are rigorous, so on the average it takes 2 or more years of study at the high school level before a dancer can be honored as a Dance Scholar. Dancers also take master classes with guest teachers throughout the year, attend summer workshops (sometimes out of state) to broaden their understanding of dance, community service to promote dance, assist young dancers in weekly classes, and some dancers pursue school projects exploring dance with choreography.
