Gift of Dance Scholarship

Peninsula Ballet Theatre’s Gift of Dance Scholarships are for youth in the community between the ages of 7 and 18 years with a passion and desire to dance. Gift of Dance are self funded by Peninsula Ballet Theatre Conservatory.  Donations to add to this fund are needed and gratefully accepted


The funds are distributed in a fair and responsible manner by Peninsula Ballet Theatres Scholarship Committee and are awarded on a first come, first served basis and depend on the availability of funds.  If funds become limited, students are placed on a waiting list until funds become available.  If a scholarship is not available or the student does meet the requirements for the Gift of Dance Scholarship, parents are encouraged to sign up for PBTeamWrx for credits applied their child’s tuition fee. Although full and partial scholarships are available the majority of our scholarships are partial so that we extend limited funds to as many students as possible.



Gift of Dance Scholarships are awarded to students based on the following guidelines:

  • Financial Need

  • Merit

  • The Student’s demonstrated desire to dance



The requirements for participating in the Gift of Dance Scholarship program are:

  • Consistent attendance.We will accept one excused absence per 7 week session.

  • Student must arrive to class on time in proper class uniform

  • Be respectful to the instructor and fellow students

  • Gift of Dance families, including PBTeamWrx participants, agree to volunteer at PBT 10 hours per Peninsula Ballet fiscal year

  • If the student is participating in a performace the normal family volunteer requirements still apply
