Please consider the gift of giving dance to children in our community, that otherwise couldn’t afford classes at Valley Academy for the Arts, INC. Valley Academy for the Arts has been  inviting students of different economic backgrounds to study tuition free at the school. Valley Academy’s philosophy is not to turn students away if they have a strong desire to dance, but can’t financially afford the classes.

We do need your support.

Tuition Relief Programs

We believe an education in ballet and the arts enriches lives beyond the physical skills gained and aim to provide ballet education to any student, regardless of their economic means. Our scholarship program provides tuition to qualified students so that they too can gain the benefits of a ballet education.

We currently have 15 scholarship students at Valley Academy for the Arts enrolled in our academic ballet program and we are proud that many of our students continue to pursue a dance career beyond high school in programs and opportunities such as:

  • Kirov Academy, Washington, DC
  • Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet
  • San Francisco Conservatory of Dance
  • Bolshoi Ballet
