HAD provided me with an immense amount of experience I had not been exposed to before and provided a world of new insight I am using now in college."

2024 Applications accepted beginning December 18, 2023
We're pleased to announce the 2024 Elevation Performing Arts Scholarship application overview. 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:
The application and payment must be submitted no later than January 31, 2024.
There will also be a preparation period for all finalists, called the Professional Development Series, from March to May of 2024. The Development Series will include dance training, educational lectures, and self-development. The finalists will also learn choreography for an opening and closing dance for the Gala. And, the dancers will perform a three-minute solo of their choice as a final audition process during live judging 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 Loretta McClure Scholarship will be given to a solo performance and dancers may receive other awards.
* If you are unable to participate in the live audition and make prior arrangements with HAD, you may submit a video audition.
