This year we are offering the equivalent of 4 Full Program Scholarships. 
Full Program Scholarship - The dancer's tuition, fundraising contribution, and volunteer hours are covered completely. 
Half Program Scholarship - The dancer will receive partial financial assistance towards their tuition, and/or partial to full coverage of their fundraising contribution, and/or partial to full coverage of their volunteer hours.
The Scholarship Application is intended to be filled out by the dancer. The applicant will not be evaluated on grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc. but rather: 
- how thorough the application has been completed

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 but 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.
