1st Position


The Steamboat Dance Theatre accepts applications for our 1st Position Dance Scholarships year round. Anyone with financial need is welcome to apply for tuition assistance to take dance classes regardless of age or ability level. Our 1st Position Scholarships are funded to Yampa Valley residents for tuition expenses for dance classes and programs in Steamboat Springs, the Yampa Valley, and the State of Colorado.

What does the Scholarship fund?

Please note that due to the popularity of our Scholarship Program the Steamboat Dance Theatre is not able to fund 100% of tuition expenses, this enables our organization to fund more students on a regular basis. Scholarships only fund basic dance training and technique classes. Scholarships do not fund registration fees, costume fees, voice classes, acting classes or any other fees or costs that are not specifically related to dance instruction such as dance rehearsal times and competitions.

Students must be registered for their dance classes to apply for funding. If you are applying for a special workshop, dance convention, competition or any other elevated level of dance experiences, please see the guidelines and apply for our 5th Position Dance Scholarships. Once approved, scholarship funds will be paid directly to the instructor/studio on behalf of the student.
