Outstanding solo participants will be presented with a California Dance Classics Scholarship Award. Recipients will be selected by the Judging panel. Selection of Award recipients shall be based on those solo performers who, during the Master Class and On-stage performance, demonstrate the ability to become future professional dancers. In addition, general conduct, respect for dance, work ethic, and attitude toward fellow dancers will be noted.

Scholarships shall be awarded at each event.

All Scholarship funds will be paid directly to a selected Dance Institution of the recipients choice. These may be accredited dance schools, studios, universities, conservatories, and training institutions. The funds must be used to further the recipient’s dance education. It may be used for year round or summer intensive tuition and for the purchase of dance shoes or dance wear.

All solo students will be eligible and carefully considered for the scholarship awards. Nominations of specific students by dance teachers or directors are welcome and accepted before the competition’s closing date. Nominees are asked to provide background information and include the reason a particular student is worthy of a scholarship. The names of nominated students will not be disclosed to the public and will only be shared with the Judging panel.

Teachers are requested to keep the name of the nominee private and are not to disclose a nominated students name to any person (including the nominee) or organization other than CDC. Teachers must email admin@CaliforniaDanceClassics.org to request a nomination form. Forms will be provided at that time for the sole use of the nominating teacher or faculty.

Scholarships are awarded at the Judges sole discretion and CDC reserves the right not to award any scholarships at any given event.
