We know we have amazing, motivated and caring students at our studio and wanted to create a program open to all students in grades 6 & up who are ready to take their potential to the next level! A program where students can continue to increase their self-confidence and leadership skills through real-life situations as ambassadors of Center Stage!

The CSA Student Leadership Team is designed to help students build upon the skills they are already developing in their dance, music & theatre classes and apply those same skills to their every day lives- becoming more self-confident and empowered to take on new challenges while helping themselves and others succeed!
 
Members of the Student Leadership Team will have the opportunity to volunteer at studio events throughout the year and serve as our go-to students when service opportunities arise!

As part of the Student Leadership Team, students are eligible to apply to to be a part of our Junior Faculty (JFac) or CSA Chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (NHSDA)!

The CSA Junior Faculty Program (or JFac) is an educational program in which students gain valuable work experience while furthering their skills in the arts. Students will receive training in communication, child development, CSA curriculum, time management and organizational skills. JFac members receive one-on-one mentorship with experienced teachers and develop skills that translate not just in the studio, but in their future roles in college and the work force. It is important to our faculty that our program not only prepare Team members for their role at CSA, but foster a love of the arts and develop leadership skills.  Click below for more details!

The CSA chapter of the National Honor Society for Dance Arts (or NHSDA) is a program of the National Dance Education Organization whose mission is to recognize outstanding artistic merit, leadership, and academic achievement in students studying dance and to foster an appreciation for dance as a true art form. Dance students are inducted based on a “point system.” Points are awarded for dance activities such as dance classes, rehearsals, performances, research, workshops, or community service, alongside a GPA of at least 3.5.  Along with recognition for their dance merit and academic success, students who are inducted will receive access to leadership and community outreach opportunities as well as mentorship from the CSA Chapter Sponsors. The NHSDA organization also offers scholarship opportunities to graduating seniors.
