The Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts (MCA)  is so proud to announce that on Saturday, January, 13th, 2018 at 3pm in the Recital Hall at the Valencia Arts Center, four outstanding students were inducted into the MCA Chapters National Honors Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA). Abbey Klein and Megan Lynch were inducted into the Secondary Chapter for High School Students and Carmelle Meyer and Ella Skranka were inducted into the Junior Chapter for 6th-8th grade students. Induction into all chapters is earned through accumulation of points awarded for dance activities such as rehearsals, performances, research, workshops, or community service activities, alongside a GPA of at least 3.0.

This was MCA’s first induction ceremony since becoming a member of the National Dance Educators Organization (NDEO) and approval as a site for Junior, Secondary and Collegiate NHSDA Chapters. The ceremony was beautifully lead by MCA Director of Dance, Tammy Schmidt featuring a brief history about NEDO, NHSDA, achievements and goals of each inductee. The ceremony also included a slide show with photos depicting each dancer’s time at MCA and wrapped up with a little spread of treats for family and friends to enjoy together on this special day.
