In 2012, Hunter was granted a chapter of the NDEO National Honor Society for Dance Arts.  "The NHSDA Collegiate Program is a dance honor society for college students. It is designed to honor the accomplishments of outstanding undergraduate or graduate students studying dance as a dance major, minor, or elective. This honors the fact that many young professionals have varying interests and abilities in dance that cover a spectrum from the pursuit of dance for personal fulfillment and joy, through career preparation, to life-long learning." -


NHSDA Vision

We envision a nation in which all students have equal opportunity and access to quality dance arts education and are recognized for their outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in the field of dance.           

NHSDA Mission:

  1. To recognize outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in students studying dance in public and private schools in K-12 education, dance studios, cultural/community centers, performing arts organizations, and post-secondary education.
  2. To foster an appreciation for dance as a true art form and one worthy of recognition and prestige.
