Reasons to Donate
Students selected to audition will be among the most outstanding high school dancers in the country. The National High School Dance Festival invites you to be a part of this process by awarding a scholarship to one or more of these deserving students. We hope your school/program can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to view so many young and talented dancers at such an important festival. Awarding a scholarship allows you to play a pivotal role in the futures of these young dancers. We thank you for this consideration.
