Scholarships

"The ADT scholarship support made me proud as a mother, and my daughters got the platform to continue their artistic growth. This scholarship support is therapeutic, gives a sense of pride, and creates belongingness here in this new city as a newcomer. I genuinely appreciate the ADT's teamwork, teachings, sincerity, punctuality and discipline. ADT's scholarship support greatly impacted my family and my daughter's mental health."
- ADT Scholarship Recipient Parent

The Scholarship Application is intended to be filled out by the Youth Artist. The applicant will not be evaluated on grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. but rather:

If you have any questions about whether it's the right time to join Alberta Dance Theatre, please contact us! We'll help you understand what to expect!
 
We ask that dancers in the ADT program are actively training. The ADT program focuses on performance and creation. Taking another dance class will develop the dancer's technique, stamina, and the various skills that will enhance the ADT experience. Actively training in dance could include dancing at a studio, school dance program, or virtual programs. Our dancer’s train all over Calgary. We can provide you a list of dance studios and community partners if you need somewhere to train.
