Dance A Difference Week

March 3-9, 2024

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.  Check out the Blog about Dance A Difference Week!

How to Participate

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 virtual classes, virtual workshops, or even ticket sales of a special virtual Dance A Difference Week performance!

Complete a chapter service project in your community

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

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and online nature of our world right now here are some virtual service ideas that your students can do. 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.
