NRG SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
NRG scholarship winners become part of an elite group of dancers chosen nation wide by NRG Dance Project’s faculty. We showcase all scholarship dancers in “The NRGies”, our closing show at Nationals as well as on NRGtv.
Scholarships are awarded to dancers who excel throughout the weekend as well as in “The Audition” class in each level. Dancers are given the opportunity to experience a real dance audition just like the pros undergo.
All NRG Scholarships are awarded at the NRG closing show!
