Vancouver Tap Dance Society recognizes that there is a need to provide bursary funding for students who may have a financial need. VanTap has established a Bursary Award Fund (for academy fees) and Jeni Legon Scholarship Fund (for tap festival tuition fees). Applicants are assessed based on a combination of financial need and demonstrated dedication to tap dance training.
Each year the Vancouver Tap Dance Society offers full and partial bursary to offset fees in a performance or recreational program. The criteria for a bursary are as follows:
The bursary only covers class fees and does not include the costs of costume rental/fees, festival fees, or any other cost incurred by enrollment in any of the Society’s tap dance programs.
A maximum of two VanTap members (current students) will be allocated a scholarship to attend the Society’s annual Festival. This scholarship will be presented at the society’s year end show in June.
