Shen Wei Dance Arts has received a small gift that will enable us to offer a limited number of scholarships to help defray the cost of tuition. Only partial scholarships will be offered, which will be based on both need and merit.*

To apply, please complete the following materials and submit them to

  • One page statement of need.
  •  Proof of need: the first page of your parent's or guardian’s tax return or your return, if you are not declared as a dependent. (Note: you are welcome to black out your social security number and address.)
  •  Resume.
  • A letter of recommendation from someone familiar with your dancing—a faculty member, choreographer, or artistic director
  • 3 minute long (maximum) video of your dancing. If the sample is from a group performance, please indicate how to identify you.  The video can be submitted via steaming link (Vimeo, YouTube), file sharing link (DropBox, etc.), or a snail mailed DVD. (If submitting DVD, please indicate so in your application.)

All materials must be received by May 8th.
Applicants will be notified no later than May 15th of scholarship Determination.

*To be considered, scholarship applicants must have fully completed their registration, including payment of 1/2 of tuition and registration fee, if applicable. (Full tuition refunds are granted for requests made before May 15, 2017.)
