Scholarships & Financial Aid

Ballet Hispánico's School of Dance provides over $200,000 in scholarships to its students every year.

Types of Support

Financial Aid Scholarship Awards

Financial aid scholarship awards are available for students and determined by a family’s adjusted income from the previous year's federal taxes, through a pre-determined calculator. This calculation will compute the percentage of tuition support your child may receive.

Additional financial aid scholarship factors include: student and family community comportment, conduct, preparedness, excessive lateness and/ or absences and overall performance within the School of Dance.


Applications for Summer 2023 will close Saturday, April 15, 2023.
