Foster Care Scholarship
Momentum Dance Studios understand family life and all the challenges that come with it. Unfortunately, not all children get the same start in life so when we see an opportunity to make things a little more equal we do. Our Foster Care Scholarship actively seeks children living in Foster Care with an interest in dance to support them throughout the many years of training ahead in their life. It's been our privilege to have worked with DOCS and Barnardos to find these hidden dancers and give them a confidential and unlimited place at our studio for as long as they choose to study dance. If you are currently supporting a child in the Foster Care system please feel free to contact us to enquire into this scholarship.
Performing Arts Scholarship Award
In 2009 Momentum Dance Studios introduced a new scholarship for our students. The Performing Arts Scholarship Award or PASA as we call it!
All of our students are considered for this award. The selection criteria encapsulates the philosophy of our studio and is listed below so interested students can strive to achieve these aims in class.
The criteria for selection is:
- Student strives to achieve their personal best in each lesson
- Student has a positive, can do attitude in each lesson
- Student displays an encouraging spirit towards other students
- Student displays evidence of home revision of exercises and dance routines
- Student makes a consistent effort towards uniform and attendance
Three students for each class are nominated by their teacher with the final decision made by the school principals and announced at our Annual Performance on stage.
The scholarship provides $1000 towards dance classes at Momentum Dance Studios during the year of the award. The scholarship student receives a medal to keep and the perpetual trophy with their name engraved on it for the 12 month period. The recipient then passes this over to the next recipient on stage at our Annual Performance.
To date, Momentum Dance Studios has awarded over 21 PASA scholarships to deserving students.
