Scholarship Initiatives

School at Dancewave Scholarships

Dancewave strives to promote diversity and equity in the arts and foster the education of the next generation of young artist citizens. School at Dancewave scholarships provide financial assistance to students and their families who are committed to the study of dance and are awarded for semester-based classes, Youth Company Program, and Summer Dance programs.

Dancewave Ambassador Scholarship Award (DASA) Program

This prestigious award program is designed to provided dedicated Dancewave students with educational and leadership development opportunities at Dancewave. Students are nominated in the spring of each year by Dancewave faculty and participate in an interview with Dancewave’s Executive/Artistic Director and Director of Education. Awards are announced in June.

DASA students participate in Dancewave’s Youth Leadership Council, have a leadership role in their classes and company rehearsals, and volunteer at Dancewave and community events throughout the year.

Scholarship Auditions

All students wishing to apply for a scholarship must attend an audition. Awards are based on merit and need. Contact school@dancewave.org to schedule an audition.
