All registered participants are eligible for scholarships!

ADE awards over $15,000 in scholarships at each event.

Independent dancers may pick up a number during check-in. VIP Studios will have their dancer’s numbers assigned and in their studio packets. Dancers simply wear this number on their dancewear during classes; there is not a traditional audition. This open format leaves more time for class and allows the audition process to be in a supportive and laid back style.

Are you already a scholarship recipient? We can’t wait to have you back at ADE!

Note: scholarships & credits expire 1 year from the date it was issued.
