At iDance, we believe passionately in the power of dance to develop artistic expression, technical skill, confidence, poise, and discipline in the students that we reach. We strive to reach as many dancers as possible and to minimize barriers to participation as much as possible.
To that end, we are pleased to introduce the iDance Scholarship Fund, which serves to mitigate the tuition cost of dance classes for families with demonstrated financial need. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, The Dance Scholarship Fund will be funded through:
- Corporate and individual gifts designated for this purpose;
- Various fundraisers throughout the year;
- A portion of dollars raised through the annual “Give Local 757 Day of Giving;” and,
- Grant funding when available.
Scholarship awards are determined by a subcommittee comprised of representatives from the iDance Board of Directors and the local community. All scholarship application materials and family financial information will be treated as strictly confidential. Scholarships are paid in two semester installments, with the second semester’s payment being contingent on the dancer being in good standing with the studio, including adhering to all conduct and attendance policies. The number and amount of scholarships awarded each year are dependent on availability of funds designated for this purpose.
