We believe every child who demonstrates a strong inclination to perform earns the opportunity to explore and develop their talent in our nurturing and challenging programs. Toward that end, Dancewave provides financial assistance to students committed to improving their lives through dance who also demonstrate need. The Scholarship Initiative strives to promote diversity and equality in the arts, as well as develop the next generation of talented young artists. 

Dancewave awarded over 50 scholarships totaling $50,000 in 2016.

The Scholarship Initiative is supported in part by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and private donors. For more information about becoming a Dancewave Donor and a complete list of current supporters, please visit Support Dancewave or email
