Dancing your way to the USA with a scholarship

Why study dance?

It is a growing industry

According to the Creative Industries Federation, jobs in the UK’s Creative Industries were growing at four times the UK average prior to the pandemic and one million people were employed in these sectors, with a further one million jobs projected to be created by 2030.

Studying dance develops creativity, teamwork, confidence, critical thinking, self-discipline, physical health and the ability to work collaboratively—all beneficial in any 21st century career path and quality of life.

As somebody that has a passion for dance you want to pursue your dream of becoming a successful  dancer, teacher and choreographer. You may also want to consider health care practitioners, researchers, dance scientists, writers, producers, programme managers, costume designers and the list goes on, but you don’t know how.  You want to study dance at university but you don’t have a big enough budget. We all know studying doesn’t come cheap, so it’s reassuring to know that there is financial help available to help talented students in performing arts


If you’re looking at the possibility of securing a performing arts scholarship in the US, you’re in the right place.


Dance and performing arts qualifications provide the opportunity to develop skills that are essential to thrive in a variety of careers, not just those within the dance or creative sectors, and for life in general!


Dance lends itself to this through students having control over their choreography and through their own interpretations of dance works, with no ‘right or wrong’ responses.


Dance is a way to self-reflect and process change, providing an outlet for emotion.
