Financial Aid Scholarships


Staying Accessible to the Communities We Live In

One of the core aspects of Ballet 5:8 School of the Arts’ mission is to make the many benefits of dance education available to everyone in our communities, regardless of their background or financial situation. With funding from the many donors who support Ballet 5:8, financial aid scholarship program makes tuition assistance available to dancers and families who cannot otherwise afford tuition.

Who Qualifies?

Financial aid recipients typically have a situation causing financial stress, such as job loss or low income. In order to qualify, applicants should also have a strong desire to learn about dance and work hard in their classes!

How Much Does Financial Aid Cover?
