Male Youth Dance Scholarship

Young Male Dancers

Boys and young men who dance with us receive an athletic experience unlike any other; combining enrichment, creativity, flexibility, and strength. In order to recruit and retain excellent male students (under age 18), the Community Division offers major scholarships. These scholarships incentivize continuous long-range study. There are three scholarship categories, which are organized by class and experience level.

Young male dancers may take advantage of

  • regular dance classes
  • opportunities to perform on a regular basis
  • partner training and coaching (as appropriate)

Scholarships are awarded and retained based on progress, commitment, and general merit.
