Introducing a new program to our 2024 - 2025 Season. As of 2024, Gasper's School of Dance (with Matt Gasper as the sponsor) is a member of National Dance Education Organization (NDEO) the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA). We have always expressed the importance of eduction and keeping up with school while still participating in dance. Being part of the NHSDA helps us reward those who are working hard in the classroom at school and the studio.

What is the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA)?

The National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ (NHSDA) is a program of the National Dance Education Organization. It is one of the most exciting benefits that NDEO offers its Institutional Members. The Secondary Program (grades 9-12) was implemented in 2005. The Collegiate Program was implemented in 2012, and a Junior Program (grades 6-8) was separated from the Secondary Program and officially launched in 2016.
