The Malashock Dance Scholarship Program
The Malashock Dance Scholarship Program creates pathways to success for aspiring dancers of any age or level of ability. The program gives priority to families and individuals who face financial barriers.
In keeping with our mission to be a comprehensive community resource for dancers and dance enthusiasts, Malashock Dance has established a Scholarship Program that includes need and merit-based awards for students who want to participate in classes, workshops, and intensives with The MD School.
Need-based scholarships are offered to students of all ages, who will benefit from the cognitive, social, physical, and artistic growth facilitated by weekly dance classes but lack the financial resources to do so.
Merit-based scholarships are awarded to pre-professional students 15 and older who demonstrate remarkable potential for a career in dance performance. Scholarships often serve as a catalyst for an apprenticeship with the MD Company. Merit-based scholarship auditions are held in conjunction with summer workshops and intensives.
Work – Trade Program
Malashock Dance is committed to providing resources for dancers who would like to seriously train at a high level, but who may face financial barriers. In exchange for classes, work-trade participants will assist with administrative and operational duties for the Malashock Dance School.

MD provides a safe space where students learn to more effectively communicate, cooperate, and collaborate. Our students gain confidence through insight and awareness about themselves, their community, and each other. MD is committed to providing expansive dance training to students with a variety of cultural backgrounds, socio-economic strata, and abilities. The dance programs we provide strengthen students’ ability to express and share their ideas through movement, while fulfilling the organization’s mission to provide transformational experiences through dance that fire the imagination and celebrate the human spirit.
