NHSDA Dance A Difference Week
March 7-13, 2021
A week of dance based community service spread throughout the nation

NDEO invites all individual participants and chapters of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA) to join us in celebrating "Dance A Difference Week" - A week dedicated to dance-based service in our communities.

How to Participate

Share the joy of dance through performance

Plan a community performance during Dance A Difference Week. You can performance at a local school or daycare, put on a small show at a local retirement home, or prepare a performance for patients at a hospital.

Teach a dance class to members of your community

You can teach a workshop to a specific group in need such as those with disabilities or youth in an underprivileged area, or just open up your studio to host an all-inclusive free dance workshop for community members. 

Fund raise money or collect donations
You can raise money for a local charity, a national dance organization, or any group in your community you think deserves the help. You might raise money through classes, workshops, or even ticket sales of a special Dance A Difference Week performance!

Complete a chapter service project in your community

Visit a local soup kitchen, make blankets or assemble hygiene kits for those in need, or find any local organization who needs volunteers. Need ideas? Visit

Share your #DanceADifferenceWeek experience

Don't forget to share your experience! Use the hashtags #NHSDA and #DanceADifference to show us how you are serving in your community. We might even share your experience on our social media pages to inspire other chapters to join in and give back to their communities.
