Vacaville Ballet Company Enrichment Scholarship
Our Company Members are required to maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA, though many maintain a 4.0 or higher, and participate in community service opportunities, though many exceed their hour requirement. The Vacaville Ballet Company is proud to offer a scholarship to current Company Members demonstrating academic excellence and outstanding service to the community. The fund awards are designated for use toward the cost of participation in a VBC Production or toward the cost of other dance-related endeavors. This includes, but is not limited to participation in summer intensive programs, dance company or college auditions, etc.
Enrichment Scholarships are awarded once annually and the number of recipients is dependent upon the available funds. Up to $500 will be awarded per recipient.
Donors interested in supporting the amazing academic, community, and dance achievements of our dancers are invited to donate directly to the VBC Enrichment Scholarship Fund. Click here to donate online.
Pointe Shoe Fund
When our company members have pointe shoes that are no longer usable, they are donated to the Company and are put on sale to our patrons in the theater lobby during our performances. Purchased pointe shoes can be autographed by our dancers as keepsake items. Most pointe shoes cost a minimum of $85 a pair and the dancers must purchase their own shoes and bear the cost. Our lead dancers will go through as many as three pairs during a production. We hope in the future, our Pointe Shoe Fund will cover the cost of the pointe shoes for all our dancers.
The Pointe Shoe Fund is a need-based scholarship distributed twice annually.
Any amount can help offset the enormous costs of pointe shoes. Donations directly to our pointe shoe fund can be made online here or in the lobby of our performances.
