Does your child aspire to be a ballet dancer? The Mountain View-based Western Ballet has announced a series of new scholarships and financial aid to encourage local children to enroll in dance classes.
As a nonprofit, Western Ballet strives to make classical ballet available to the community, regardless of ability to pay for lessons. To that end, the studio is offering up to $20,000 in aid programs to help students who could no otherwise afford tuition.
Any students who are interested in the scholarships are asked come for an audition on Saturday, Aug. 31, starting at 1 p.m. The studio is located at 914 N. Rengstorff Ave. in Mountain View.
The scholarships are primarily intended for boys or girls aged 6 to 10. All who audition are asked to come wearing non-restrictive dance clothes. To be eligible, a parent or guardian will need to provide a copy of their 2018 tax return. More information is at westernballet.org.
