Dancers are eligible for auditions if the member they are attending with has attended the festival with dancers at least one year prior to 2021.
Before selecting an audition ensure the dancer is age appropriate for the scholarship. This includes meeting the minimum age for dorm stay if applicable.
Scholarships presented by Dance WV and intended for summer intensives do NOT require an audition.
Two $1000 scholarships for dancers ages 12+ and two $500 scholarships for dancers under the age of 12 will be awarded from Dance WV. Dancers who wish to be considered for cash scholarships will be given a number at registration and should wear their number for ALL classes during the festival weekend. On the registration form students wishing to be considered should list under the audition tab “Cash”. They may additionally choose an audition to attend to be considered for other scholarships. Example: “cash/#1”
