Dance Project is pleased to announce our Professional Practice Program.
This special summer program is for dance professionals who would like to take regular technique classes, but are struggling to fit it into their financial picture.

Qualified applicants are serious dance professionals (recent graduates of dance programs or those actively working in the field of dance) who are able to take at least 24 classes over the summer. The reduced tuition cost is $125 (payable in full by June 16th or in two installments of $75 payable by June 15th, 2015 and $50 payable by July 25th). Scholarship recipients are expected to abide by our procedures and policies (available on our website). Applicants should submit a letter of interest and resume/curriculum vitae to school@danceproject.org. The deadline for applications is June 1st.
