Membership in Delta Eta Pi (ΔΗΠ) is open to students who are active in secondary school (6th to 12th grades), studios, collegiate dance programs – dance majors & minors as well as serious dance students who have participated in an accredited dance or arts-related class at the host institution for at least one semester, graduate students, and to faculty in the discipline. Membership in the Honor Society is based on a student’s fulfillment of four requirements – scholarship, leadership, service, and character.
Potential members must be considered by the faculty advisor or committee of the chapter to be outstanding in scholarly achievement and dance studies and must have maintained a GPA.
To remain a member in good standing, members must be actively involved in dance classes, production, and service projects. To maintain membership, students are required to serve 5 hours of service in a dance-related activity per year, pay annual dues, maintain a 3.2 cumulative average, and attend chapter meetings.
