Dance for Tomorrow Financial Aid Scholarships
Financial aid scholarships are awarded to students demonstrating financial need. Determinations are made on a case-by-case basis, and only a limited number of scholarships are offered per year. Scholarships are awarded for up to one school year, September through June, and separately for the summer sessions. Financial Aid forms are available from the School Administrator and must be returned by August 15th for the School Year and by February 20th for the Summer Session.

Male Scholarship Program
Ballet Chicago's Men's Scholarship Training Program began in 2002. Since that time, over 100 talented young men, ages 15 and up, have been selected to participate in our exceptional programs, almost all of them receiving full of partial scholarships. Of these men, over 25 are currently dancing in professional companies throughout the US, Europe, and South America.
