Portland Youth Dance strives to provide as many children as possible with the opportunity to explore a variety of dance forms and to train in a professional setting. Each year we provide several dancers between the ages of 8 and 18, with a free weekly class from September to June, culminating in a year-end performance through Casco Bay Movers Dance Studio. PYD also awards a limited number of sponsorships for dancers 10-18 years, who have auditioned for and been accepted into Portland Youth Dance Companies. Applications for class scholarships are due by July 31st, 2018. Applications for sponsorship are due by August 28th, 2018. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered. Applications can be downloaded here: 2018/19 Scholarship Application.
Applications are also available at Casco Bay Movers Dance Studio, 517 Forest Avenue, Suite 6, Portland, Maine 04101.
