Springdans Scholarship for 2016 – apply before February 15

The Springdans committee is pleased to announce a scholarship for 2016 Springdans Northwest.  The scholarship covers full tuition (includes room and board), video recording, t-shirt, and Friday dinner. 

Applicants must be current Skandia members living in Western Washington.  Scholarship is based on financial need, so it offers a great opportunity to dancers and/or musicians who are thinking about Springdans but don’t feel they can afford it.  Prior recipients are welcome to apply.

The donor has requested to remain anonymous.  In order to maintain the confidentiality of all parties, applicants should not discuss their application or their intent to apply with anyone outside the Springdans committee. 

Interested dancers and/or musicians should send a short note with reasons they should be considered for the scholarship.  This submission must be received by February 15, 2015.  Send via email to or surface mail to Springdans Scholarship c/o Ploeger-Meyers, 7016 17th Ave NW, Seattle, WA  98117-5550.

Note:  Because admission is based on postmark of registration, scholarship applicants should submit a registration form as soon as possible to reserve a spot.

To our benefactor, thank you!
