NHSDA Preferred Vendor Program
A pilot program for the 2017-2018 school year

The National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) is comprised of over 800 chapters throughout the nation. Over 4,000 members were inducted into the society during the 20162017 school year, and thousands of others have already begun working towards induction. The NHSDA Preferred Vendor Program was created to provide additional benefits to our inducted students who are maintaining excellence in Artistic Merit, Leadership, and Academic Achievement, while providing outstanding vendors a chance to increase awareness of their products and services.
