Our first annual program in 1999 resulted in $10,000 in scholarship monies being awarded. Now we award $25,000 each year to twenty lucky individuals. Just as we did in previous years, since we are not in a position to judge the artistic merits or financial situation of the applicants, we will have a random drawing to select the winners.We leave the nominations to you, the teachers, to make a judgment about the students you support. Our hope is to offer a little financial help to some lucky young people who wish to continue in whatever form of dance helps fulfill their lives. All the applicant information must be filled in. The certification is then to be completed by the dance instructor.
