High School Seniors: Apply For This College Dance Scholarship Right Now

Let's be real: One can never have too much money for college. Between tuition, housing, textbooks, dance wear, etc., the expenses add up. Fast.

But the Association of Dance Conventions & Competitions is here to help. One of the organization's main missions is to help dancers like you pursue their dreams. This year's ADCC College Dance Scholarships will range from $500 to $1,000, to go toward the college or university of the winning dancer's choice.

Applicants need to be graduating seniors this year, and already accepted to a college or university program for the 2017-2018 academic year. They also need to have attended at least 2 ADCC member competition events during the 2016-2017 season (see the list of competitions here).

Does that sound like you? ✔︎

All you need to do to be considered is complete the online application by 5 pm on August 1, 2017. Easy-peasy-lemon- squeezy. 👍💰📚

In the meantime, check out where last year's winners ended up. And if you'd like even more info about all things college scholarships, keep an eye out for our July/August issue.

How Project 21 Is Shaping the Next Generation of Competition-Dance Standouts

"I wish I had a better story about the name," says Molly Long, founder of the Orange County, CA–based dance studio Project 21. In truth, it's a play on the fact that she was born on the twenty-first of August, and 21 is her favorite number. "I was away on a teaching tour, the audition announcement was going live on Instagram the next day, and I desperately needed a name. Project 21 was just the least cheesy of the options I thought of!"

The fact that fans might expect the name to have some profound meaning speaks to the near-mythic status Project 21 has achieved on the competition and convention scene since its founding in 2014. Long's dancers are all wholly individual, yet jell seamlessly as a group, and are consistently snagging top prizes everywhere on the circuit. Each season brings a slew of new accolades, high-caliber faculty, and legions of devoted followers.

The industry has taken notice of the studio's unique ethos. "Molly gets through to her dancers in a special way, and they have this incomparable level of commitment to their craft as a result," says dancer and choreographer Billy Bell, who's worked closely with Long and her dancers. "That's what sets them apart—it's like a little dose of magic."

Here are eight other shows that we'd love to view from our living rooms.
