Senior Scholarships

The Southern Association of Dance Masters awards five Summer Convention scholarships to students who will be participating in the Senior class. These students are selected by audition during the previous Fall Convention.

To audition, students must be 13 or older on the audition date (i.e., the day of the Fall Convention). They must be students of SADM members and may not have previously won the scholarship. The scholarship is limited to those dance students who will be enrolled in the Senior class during the Summer Convention for which they are auditioning. Scholarships may not be applied toward registration for the Teachers Class.

Audition Process:

  • Sign up at the SADM Registration Desk during the morning of the Fall Convention.
  • Wear your assigned number throughout the day.
  • Judges will observe ability, enthusiasm, and work attitude.
  • Participate in the audition class during the lunch break.
  • Anyone auditioning for the Senior Scholarships must participate in the entire day's activities to be considered.

Questions about the scholarship may be directed to Tevita Dumas. The winners will be announced at the Fall Convention's Finale Session.
