The cost of a dance education in the Washington, DC metropolitan area is significant. At the JCCNV, we believe that everyone should be able to have dance in their life. Each year we fundraise, collect donations, and set aside funds in order to assist a few deserving families with the expenses associated with our program. The JCCNV Dance Academy hopes to receive sponsorships from families and corporations to help fund the scholarship program.
The annual cost for a student to participate in one hour of dance each week is about $1,000. Please help us to provide positive arts experiences here at the Center by sponsoring a scholarship. Note: if you commit to funding one scholarship for a minimum of five years, the JCCNV Dance Academy will name the scholarship after you, your family or your business. This is a great way to honor your commitment to making quality dance programs in Northern Virginia accessible to all.
This scholarship is awarded at the annual spring dance recital to an advanced-level student that shows exceptional technique and artistry in the field of dance.
