Dance/USA Conference | Scholarship | Due March 31st

The Dance/USA Conference—June 13-16 in Atlanta—is an invigorating gathering of approximately 400 dance professionals united by their interests in advancing dance and celebrating the joy of movement. It is a time to honor leaders in the field, share and access new resources, and connect with peers through thought-provoking training and conversations. Together attendees discover innovative approaches to shared problems and strengthen relationships among fellow dance professionals.

South Arts recognizes that for some, participation costs may be a barrier. We are happy to offer scholarships to attend the Dance/USA Conference this year, which require applicants to currently reside in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These scholarships will support conference registration costs. The deadline to apply is Friday, March 31, 2023.

We encourage anyone interested and eligible for the scholarships to apply. For these scholarships, we are prioritizing support for dance leaders who may be:

  • A Black Person, Indigenous Person, or a Person of Color (BIPOC)
  • An individual with a disability
  • An individual whose annual income is lower than $30,000
  • An individual who is based in the state of Georgia
