Support the Dancers
Attending the National Collegiate DanceSport Championships can be the highlight of a student’s college experience.
If you believe that every student who wants to attend should be given the opportunity, then please consider lending us a hand!
How You Can Help the Students
Each year we provide financial assistance to teams looking to attend that need it. Without the support from alumni, friends, and family of students, we would not be able to meet nearly as many requests.
If you would be willing to help us, we can accept your donations at the USA Dance donations page. Make sure you specify that your donation is for ‘NCDC Financial Assistance’. Any amount you can provide makes a big difference in the lives of a dancer, and donations to USA Dance are tax-deductible.
A great way to improve the efficacy of your donations is to see if your workplace has a corporate match for donations made. We’ve even seen some companies provide matching up to $2,500 dollars!
If you wish to support a specific team directly, you can always reach out to them and ask how you can help. We know that some schools make it difficult to donate directly to a team you wish to support. In that case, if the team is coming to USA Dance National Collegiate DanceSport Championships, please contact us and we may be able to assist with ensuring your donation makes it to your team of choice.
Awards and Prizes
Sometimes individuals and USA Dance Chapters like to sponsor prize money for the finalists and winners of USA Dance National events. At first, this may not seem like the most noble or charitable way to help a student. However, we’ve seen it have an enormous impact on recipients.
If you wish to provide scholarship, you do so by donating to our scholarship fund. Though any amount is always welcome and can be put to good use, we recommend at least $200 to ensure several recipients in at least one event get a meaningful award. Please specify what heats you would like your scholarship to go to, or simply specify that they should go to college heats.
