25 Scholarships Campaign

  • We believe strongly that dance should be accessible to everybody, and our scholarship fund helps make that possible.
  • We’re aiming to fund 25 scholarships ($200 each) by December 31! Each time another scholarship is funded, one of the dancers on the Studio 323 windows turns gold; help us turn all the dancers gold and fill the studio with dancers!
  • If you are able to help in these efforts… you can make a secure gift online, or by bringing a check to the Dance Project office. Gifts of all sizes make a big difference! Scan the QR code on the studio display or visit:
  • Thanks to Dance Project family Dori and Paloma Mondon for sharing their experience of finding a new dance home at Dance Project with the support of scholarship and work-study assistance:
