***2022 is now closed. See you in 2023!!***
We're pleased to announce The Elevation Performing Arts Scholarships! Offering scholarships to San Antonio, TX and surrounding area dancers is critical for fulfilling our mission of serving and supporting young artists focused on dance as a serious aspect of their future. While dancers may not need wings to fly, we're here to ensure they have what they need to thrive.
The Elevation Performing Arts Scholarships submission process consists of three requirements:
All three of these will need to be submitted no later than February 10, 2022.
Twenty finalists from the application process will be invited to an in-studio audition to include Ballet and Jazz. A panel of judges will then select ten finalists from the audition to attend the Elevation Performing Arts Dinner Theater Gala on June 25, 2022. All applicants must be available for the performance.
There will also be a three-month preparation period for all finalists, called the Professional Development Series, from March-May of 2022. The Development Series will include dance training, educational lectures, and self-development. The final ten will also learn choreography for an opening and closing dance for the Gala. In addition, the dancers will perform a three-minute solo of their choice as a final audition process at the Gala.
Three scholarship winners will be honored with a first, second, and third place monetary award to invest in their future dance training. The top scholarship will start at $10,000.
