Spotlight Dance Cup’s Sharing the Spotlight program recognizes individuals who excel both on and off stage and are looking to further their dance education. The purpose of this program is to honor students that are not only exceptional in dance, but also generously donate their time and talents to make a positive impact within their community. Whether it’s their uplifting presence within the studio, dedication to a local charity, or exemplary performance in school, these students exhibit the highest level of work ethic, motivation, and kindness.
These exceptional students serve as an inspiration through their ability to make everyone around them shine and, most importantly, will use the scholarship to further their dance education. Regional winners will receive great prizes and are automatically entered into our National Sharing the Spotlight contest for a chance to win up to $20,000 in scholarships for continued dance education.
Dancers, ages 16-19, must submit a completed application at least 5 days prior to the competition their studio will attend including National Finals. Be sure to include all the following documents:
• Sharing the Spotlight Application (Part A)
• Personal Essay (Part B)
• Two Letters of Recommendation (Part B)
• Official High School Transcript (Part B)
Please submit only one application per event. Multiple students may apply from the same studio. Students may apply at multiple regional competitions of which they are attending, but are only eligible to win at one regional competition per season. ALL “Last chance” applications are due no later than 2-4 weeks before Nationals to be considered for the Sharing the Spotlight Scholarship at any of our National events. Applications may be resubmitted for any non-winning nominee that wishes to be reconsidered for the “last chance” contest. Scholarship winnings will be submitted directly to winners’ institution of choice.
