Description

The 2019 Ballet in the City Scholarship

The Ballet in the City Scholarship (formerly The Misty Copeland Scholarship) was established by Ballet in the City in 2015 to provide opportunities for African American dancers in classical ballet. To continue this legacy, Ballet in the City will award two $350 scholarships to one male and one female African American dancer to support costs associated with continuing their ballet training. The 2018 recipients should be not only hardworking in the studio, but also demonstrate upstanding character.
