Scholarships offered for Dance/USA summer conference

Head to the ATL in June with help from South Arts


The Dance/USA Conference—June 13-16 in Atlanta—is said to be “an invigorating gathering of approximately 400 dance professionals united by their interests in advancing dance and celebrating the joy of movement.”

Attendees get to honor leaders in the field, share and access new resources, and connect with peers through thought-provoking training and conversations. Together attendees discover innovative approaches to shared problems and strengthen relationships among fellow dance professionals.

Sounds worthwhile to The Hub! Our partners at South Arts recognize that participation costs may be a barrier and, along with the Georgia Council for the Arts, are offering scholarships to attend the Dance/USA Conference this year. Applicants are required to currently reside in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. These scholarships will support conference registration costs. The deadline to apply for scholarship assistance is Friday, March 31, 2023.

Anyone interested and eligible for the scholarships is encouraged to apply. Be aware that South Arts is prioritizing support for dance leaders who may be:

  • A Black Person, Indigenous Person, or a Person of Color (BIPOC)
  • An individual with a disability
  • An individual whose annual income is lower than $30,000
  • An individual who is based in the state of Georgia
