FWDC’s 2017-2018 Scholarship auditions will be held at the Fort Wayne Dance Collective, Wednesday, August 16, 2017. We understand that dance can be expensive. Through funding provided by the Wells Fargo Foundation and generous support from donors like YOU, we are able to share the gift of dance, drumming and wellness classes!

Scholarships are given based on need, not experience. Families may receive up to two scholarships per family. A scholarship is good for ONE free class per recipient for 1 full-year (Fall, Winter/Spring & Summer semesters). Classes include dance, drumming and wellness classes. If you or your child do not meet the requirements below, FWDC does offer work/study, payment plans, and other options. We will happily work with you as we want to see you moving in our beautiful studios! Please call the office for more information.

  • Complete and submit the application form below no later than Monday, August 14th
