The mission of the Adopt-a-Dancer Scholarship Fund is to provide scholarships to promising dancers with financial need to attend our yearly workshops.

Since 2000 Doug Varone and Dancers has hosted a yearly 3 week intensive workshop for up to 80 pre-professional and professional dancers. Each year we provide financial aid to up to 30% of the students. We are committed to supporting more students in the future. Please join us in our committment by making a tax deductible contribution to the fund.

This is what some of our students have to say about it:

"The personal involvement and investigation, combined with the sincerity of the dancers, the value of information shared, and growth of everyone within classes far outweighed my expectations. This may have been the best workshop for me as a dancer and performer.”

“This workshop has always reminded me of why I dance. I am grateful to have been introduced to the human being within my dancing.”

“The workshop exceeded my expectations in every way, especially after coming last year. Doug and the company have made me feel more rich and alive and beautiful as a dancer, human being, and member of this artistic community. I am so overwhelmed by all I’ve learned and experienced – these three weeks have been life-changing.”

“This was such a valuable experience for me. The diversity among the dancers allowed for such a full and all encompassing process.”

Support the Adopt-a-Dancer in Training Scholarship Fund which awards pre-professional dancers financial aid to participate in our Annual Three week workshops.
