27th Annual Esther Geoffrey Scholarship Competition




at 4:00 & 5:30 PM

Chipeta Elementary School Gymnasium

We are thrilled to announce the 27th Esther Geoffrey Scholarship Competition here in Colorado Springs! Throughout the years we have awarded over $52,000 in scholarships to deserving young dancers.

The competition will be part of master classes presented by Gaspard&Dancers of Raleigh, NC. These awards provide assistance to young dancers to pay for dance instruction in summer intensive programs, private instruction, or continuing instruction in their home studios. Payment is directly to the studio or instructional facility chosen by the winner.

Winners are selected based on outstanding individual technical proficiency and performance potential, not on studio affiliation. Judges include a panel of professional dancers and unaffiliated instructors.
