Melina's NHSDA

The Melina's chapter of NHSDA aims to promote positivity inside and outside of the studio.


The National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ (NHSDA) is a program of the National Dance Education Organization that recognizes outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement while fostering an appreciation for dance as a true art form worthy of recognition and prestige.

We challenge our members to be positive members of the community and role models for the dancers around them. Our goal is for all dancers to know that they matter and can make a difference in the world around them.


We are glad to be serving our studio and community throughout the year.

Together we can change the conversation about mental health and put a stop to this tragic loss of life.
