In NYCDA’s 500 Club, Studios Can Raise Money for Student Scholarships
May 28, 2015

In recent years, New York City Dance Alliance has become known for its college dance scholarships. Since its inception in 2010, the organization’s scholarship foundation has awarded more than $12 million to students, often offering full rides to respected four-year institutions. Now, NYCDA is looking for studios to contribute to the scholarship pool. You’ll be joining proud sponsors like Dance Magazine; plus, it’s an investment that could easily pay off for your students in the future.

Through July 1, NYCDA invites studios to join its 500 Club, meaning you commit to contributing $500 to NYCDA’s scholarship fund. The ultimate goal is to round up 200 studios that will contribute a total of $100,000 toward student scholarships.

NYCDA encourages studios to take on the donation commitment as a fundraising goal, since the funds can benefit your dancers in the future, as they prepare for college. This year, the main college scholarship audition will be held on July 2 in New York City, open to all dancers who attend the NYCDA summer workshop. Plus, for every $1,000 your studio raises, a dancer will be eligible to attend a second, private, audition, September 26 in New York City.
