ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM:
Specially selected students will have the unique advantage of taking part in exciting classes with industry leading teachers and choreographers. Dancers will train in different styles for 10 week sessions. They will also have the chance to sit down with each teacher, choreographer, educator for a one on one review of their past 10 weeks. Helpful motivation and criticism will be given furthering each dancers individual progression. Not only do the dancers train physically, but they also train mentally in our educational classes. The most useful and current information will be given out through research project, homework, and guest lectures focusing on dance as a business!
Students will finish the year with a self run show, starting with marketing, advertising, all the way through the aspects of a show to dancing in it themselves. Important figures of the dance community are there every year and will be watching to see their success!

Toronto Scholarship Program highly recommends that each prospective student attend at least one of the many LR Dance classes during the summer. The Artistic Director prefers to have a hands on approach to really get a feel for each student’s ability. This has been proven to help in the “decision making” process during the audition in the dancers favor.
