SCHOLARSHIPS

Dream big with the support of others!

You’ve got the drive, you’ve got the talent and you’ve got the heart...

Let us give you the boost to get the experience!

 

It's no secret that quality opportunities come with the necessity to shoulder great financial costs and no dancer should have to miss out on those opportunities due to lack of finances. The Backstage Foundation understands the great impact training opportunities & quality mentorship can have on how dancers grow. If you’ve set goals on becoming a part of a dance company or dance team, going into the dance industry or pursuing a career in the entertainment industry through creative movement, we want to be a part of that journey by helping YOU reach those goals.

 

Apply for one of our scholarships below to get you where you need to be. It is our hope, honor and pleasure to be the support that could make the greatest difference.

Our scholarships are NOT awarded for ballroom dance, gymnastics/acrobatics/aerial, cultural/ethnic dance or exotic dance.
