The NYC Dance Alliance Foundation Inc. (NYCDAF) is an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity, committed to enriching the lives of talented teenagers by promoting education and high standards of excellence in dance, while promoting performing arts awareness. In 2019, the Foundation established a program recognizing those dancers who choose to attend a certificate program. Dancers choosing to pursue certain certificate programs will receive 50% of the amount they were originally awarded.
The NYCDA Foundation College Scholarship Program awards students pursuing a performance based major (dance, musical theater BA or BFA program) in college. Auditions for the scholarship will only be open to dancers registered to attend the NYCDA 4-day Summer Workshop and who have most recently completed their junior or senior year in high school. Deadlines for this award will vary, and dollar amounts will also vary as well.
