Scholarships / Grants
Our team knows that dance isn't always easy to afford. Through our scholarship and grant programs we will enable those that have the passion and ability, but not the means, to follow their dreams. Scholarships will be awarded to Arizona individuals for tuition to study at reputable institutions worldwide. Grants will be awarded to help cover the costs that scholarships don't, such as shoes, airfare, and various fees.
The children of today are tomorrow's dancers and audiences. It has also been proven that exposure to the arts improves their academic performance. ADF will make lecture/demonstration series available for educators and parents both online and in person.
Teachers have to learn how to teach. This is why schools around the country require that academic educators be educated themselves. The same principle applies to dance. If an instructor does not understand what they are doing lifelong harm can be done to a child's body. ADF intends to offer pedagogy training to expand teachers knowledge base.
