National Honors Society for Dance Arts

Colorado Ballet Academy was awarded Chapter 115 of the National Honors Society for Dance!  Students in grades 6-12 are invited to apply.  Benefits of National Honors Society for Dance Arts:

Students deserve the honor and prestige that comes from their achievement in dance.  Many students are working hard on academics and leadership while perfecting their dance craft not only at school but also outside of school.  The personal gratification that students receive from being inducted into the NHSDA is a boost to their self-esteem.  It is a win-win for all; the student, the school, and the field.  If you are interested in applying, please contact the Academy at 303-339-1623.
