Scholarship Opportunities

Spotlight Dance Cup’s Sharing the Spotlight program recognizes individuals (ages 17-19) who excel both on and off stage. Individuals planning to further their dance education the semester following the 2019 competition season are eligible to apply. 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 a free solo to Nationals, a $50 Discount Dance Supply Card and are automatically entered into our National Sharing the Spotlight contest for a chance to win up to $10,000 in scholarships for continued dance education.

Dancers, ages 17-19, must submit a completed application at least 10 days prior to the competition their studio will attend including National Finals to Be sure to include all the following documents:
