Financial Aid FAQs
Dance Institute “Promise Scholarship”
This merit-based award covers 50% of tuition costs for a youth student in Joy of Motion’s Dance Institute. The purpose of the award is to encourage and applaud participation in conservatory-style training among those who are traditionally under-represented in the art of dance — including boys, non-binary youth, youth of color, and youth with disabilities. The 2017-18 Promise Scholarship is made possible by individual donors.
The recipient will be selected annually through the Dance Institute audition process.
