GIFT OF DANCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

Spectrum offers Gift of Dance Scholarships and financial aid to students and families. The
 Spectrum
 Dance
 Theater’s
 Gift

 Dance
 Scholarships
 are
 for
 youth 
in 
the
 community between 
the
 ages 
of 
2 
to 
22 
years 
with
 the
 desire 
to 
dance.
 
These 
funds 
are 
distributed 
in 
a 
fair and 
responsible 
manner 
by 
Spectrum’s 
Scholarship
 Committee 
and 
are 
awarded 
on 
a 
first-come, first 
served
 basis, 
and 
the 
availability 
of 
funds.

 If 
funds 
become
 limited, 
students 
will 
be
 placed on 
a 
waiting 
list 
until 
funds 
become
 available.
 
If
 the 
student
 does
 not 
meet 
the
 requirements 
for the 
Gift 
of 
Dance 
Scholarship, 
parents 
are 
encouraged
 to 
sign 
up 
for 
work‐study 
in
 the 
Spectrum office 
in 
exchange 
for 
their 
child’s 
tuition
 fee.
