The Alabama Dance Council’s Festival Scholarship program is designed to help you keep moving towards your goals as a dancer/artist. We believe in tearing down barriers to arts access – and that’s why the Dance Festival Scholarship program is open to all festival participants. Your age, gender, occupation, cultural background, and family status should not be an impediment to attending the festival and pursuing your dreams.
You may apply for multiple financial assistance opportunities to attend the festival but will only be eligible to receive one. Financial assistance recipients are responsible for any other expenses including registration fee ($10), travel, housing, and meal expenses.
For questions about the Dance Festival Scholarship program, email firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team members will assist you.
