M.P.A.C Scholarship Program offers financially supported full-time training for students ages 8-21 who demonstrate the highest potential for a professional career in dance.

Supplemental classes include Paul Taylor Modern, Jazz, Dunham, West African, Body Conditioning, and Improvisation. Dancers will also engage in weekly professional development courses of Business of Dance, Production, Resume Building and Mock Auditions and Interviews.

Scholarship students also have the opportunity to audition for repertory classes with guest artists and resident choreographers. All classes culminate in in-studio showings and performances at the end of each term.

Criteria for acceptance varies depending on the age and technical proficiency of the applicant. Decisions are emailed to applicants within 2 to 3 weeks of the audition.
