Nuestro Futuro Scholarship Fund
The Nuestro Futuro Scholarship Program rewards students of exceptional talent with a full-tuition scholarship to Ballet Hispánico’s School of Dance. For many students in our community, a dance education would not be possible without considerable financial support. Ongoing investment in talented students ensures that Ballet Hispánico prepares students for success in higher education or professional careers.
Our leadership-based scholarship program engages each donor by pairing them with a student. Through progress updates, personal invitations to student performances, and special events, our donors receive first-hand experience of the impact their generosity is having on each student’s life.
With your help, we will be able to nurture many more future dancers, choreographers, and leaders.

Nuestro Futuro Scholarship Program Levels of Support:
- $15,000 provides a full year of intensive training and performance opportunities for the pre-professional dancer
- $10,000 provides an advanced student with a full year of dance training
- $5,000 provides a partial year of dance training for a dedicated dancer
- $2,000 provides an introduction to dance training for the aspiring young dancer
Through the Scholar’s Program we are taking a new approach to mentoring talented young people in our community by addressing the full range of issues they face as low-income youth who are motivated to reach their dreams. Our new scholarships will include full dance training awards to ten young people ages 5-7 covering Ballet Hispánico tuition and all expenses related to their dance training, such as shoes, dance specific clothing, and supplies. In addition, the program will provide wraparound services for the students and their families such as travel support, family guidance counseling, student tutoring, and nutrition support. We feel that in order to create a platform for success, we must have a comprehensive, holistic, youth and family-driven way of supporting the students. Full scholarships and program support would be provided for 13 years, throughout the students’ K-12 education.
