The Vancouver Tap Dance Society has long held an ethic to work against the financial barriers that many students encounter on their journey towards tap dance education. This ethic is due in large part to the story of founding Executive Director, Sas Selfjord, who as a child, would walk by the very building that is now the VanTap Cultural Arts Centre, unable to take part in the dance classes being held inside on account of financial barriers.
This year we officially named our scholarship fund in Sas’ honor, to commemorate her commitment to provide those who have need or exhibit merit the necessary resources to pursue their journey. For the first time in our history we are officially launching an annual campaign to seed the Sas Selfjord Scholarship Fund. We need your generosity to continue the ethic of giving that began with our founding.
