MCA is excited to announce that we will hold our first induction ceremony for our chapter for National Honor on Saturday, January 13 at 2:30 pm in the Recital Hall at MCA.
The National Honor Society for Dance Arts™ (NHSDA) is a program of the National Dance Education Organization, created to recognize outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in students studying dance. Dancers interested being inducted in January are personally responsible for documenting their own points towards induction. They can do this using the Points Tracking Form available at nhsda-ndeo.org, or by creating their own spreadsheet. This documentation will then be submitted to MCA NHSDA Chapter Sponsor Tammy Schmidt by the Monday, Dec. 4, 2017.

The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts is incredible! My children have truly enjoyed being part of the dance-arts community at MCA. The instructors are skilled artists whose passion shows through as they deliver a developmentally-appropriate curriculum in a child-centered and caring way. All families and community members are always welcome at MCA and encouraged to be part of the arts in Winona. Thank you MCA and MCA staff and volunteers.Kristina
The MCA combos help me step out of my comfort zone and be with people outside my school. And I got to play a new instrument. There is no pressure to be awesome, just do the best you can.Hannah
