YOUTH SCHOLARSHIPS

While our tuition prices are among some of the lowest in the country, there still are some who cannot afford to participate. The Youth Scholarships provide a way for as many young people to experience the Arts. As in years past, we will continue to provide as many scholarships as possible for children needing financial aid.
