Did You Know...…That many colleges offer dance scholarships?
Students who take dance lessons consistently each session, year after year, can gain just as much skill as competitive dancers.
I attended a dance school like Main Street Dance Works in my elementary, middle and high school years and was able to get my Bachelors in Dance in college and obtain a North Carolina teaching license in dance for grades K-12. I was even named outstanding senior in my department.
If you do want to consider dancing into college, I recommend taking lessons now at a school with a director who was trained in how to teach dance (like ours!). Students who start at a young age have an advantage over those who start later.
Dance is great exercise, it’s great for emotional well-being and helps students find friends to connect with who like the things they like. Performing can be a great confidence builder.
