The Chicago Academy for the Arts, the nation's premier visual and performing arts high school, seeks dancers for the Rusty and Jeffrey Sanfilippo Young Men's Dance Initiative scholarship. Selected elite-level male dancers entering the ninth grade will receive tuition assistance for up to the entire cost of tuition. In creating this initiative, The Academy aims not only to recruit, support, and train young men with significant dance potential, but to serve the dance community at large. Proper ballet programs need male dancers, and any serious dance program has a ballet component. The Academy is thrilled to help guide more young male dancers into higher education and careers in the art form—in Chicago’s celebrated dance community and beyond.
Visit The Academy's website for more information and to schedule your audition now! Applications to The Chicago Academy for the Arts are accepted until January 11. Be sure to check out our Summer Dance Program as well, running June 24-29, 2019.
