Each year the SOA dance dept. travels with students to the National or Regional High School Dance Festival to expose them to master teachers, college professors, and dance students from around the country. Each year students who attend audition for scholarships. Alumni have received scholarships to prestigious college dance programs such as: Boston Conservatory, Joffrey Summer Program, Pointe Park University, and University of the Arts, to name a few. Students are offered scholarships to local college dance programs as well such as Coker College and Winthrop University. They can also receive summer dance intensive scholarships.
Congratulations to the 2017-8 winners of the Cecelia Slowinsky scholarships, Brianna Campbell and Addison Pridemore! Read more about this yearly scholarship here.
The Little Swan Scholarship is also available to graduating seniors this year with at least a 3.0 GPA. The Little Swan Scholarship was created by the Charleston School of the Arts Class of 2006, in memory of former SOA dance major Christine Elaine Piontek. They are also donating $100 to the dance department.
