sharing the spotlight scholarship application

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 2020 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 at one of our National events, a $50 Discount Dance Supply Card and will automatically be entered in 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 10 days prior to the start of the competition their studio will attend.

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. “Last Chance” applications will be accepted no later than June 1, 2020. 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.
