About this event

The 2021 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 a $350 scholarship to an African American dancer to support costs associated with continuing their ballet training. The 2021 recipient should be not only hardworking in the studio, but also demonstrate upstanding character.
