  • Why are some dancers recognized in class and not given a scholarship?
    During class the faculty like to recognize dancers for the hard work, effort, ability, etc. Sometimes dancers are called out because the faculty want to see them do the choreography again, or have a chance to dance with other dancers. They want to push them and help them grow. By doing this, they are able to determine which dancers they would like to recommend before submitting their final list.
  • What is the process of becoming a Prodigy All-Star?
