We believe every child who demonstrates a strong inclination to perform earns the opportunity to explore & develop their talent in our nurturing & challenging programs. Towards 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 a record-breaking 55 scholarships totaling over $60,800 in 2014.

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
