  • Once you have added a dancer to your registration roster, you will see a “scholarship” box next to their name.  If a dancer has a valid scholarship, please check this box.  Once you check this box, a drop-down menu will appear with all of the scholarship options.  Please select the scholarship that your dancer received.  Once this scholarship has been selected, this dancer’s registration fees will be waived.

  • Students may only win each scholarship once a season. Example: If a dancer has won a MVA Runner Up scholarship in a season they cannot receive that scholarship again in the same season. However, they do qualify to place as a MVA Winner.
