As part of its mission, Springfield Ballet is pleased to offer tuition and pointe shoe scholarships for children ages seven and older who have a strong passion for and desire to study ballet. No previous dance experience is needed to apply; Springfield Ballet trains students of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds.
Interested students must complete a detailed application, exhibit talent and potential, and attend an audition class in order to be considered for tuition and/or pointe shoe scholarships.
