The primary mission of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts is to promote and honor outstanding dance achievement in middle and high school level students. Student membership is awarded on the basis of points earned for meritorious work in dance that meet the honor society’s general guidelines. In addition, the prospective member’s demonstration of collaborative teamwork, motivation, and participation in the many aspects of dance (choreography, performance, teaching, production, etc.) is a factor in the determination of eligibility for membership.
To quality for membership, a student must earn 30 points, at least 20 of which should be earned while participating in dance activities at Holy Trinity. A student may earn up to 10 points while participating in community dance activities or other activities in the performing arts outside of school.
After a student has been inducted, he/she may continue to accumulate points toward the awarding of stars for continued meritorious work in dance. Up to 5 stars can be awarded, 1 star for every 10 points earned.
