Location & Details
Gibney 280: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center

280 Broadway, New York

Studio U + H

Dancers will be divided into two groups. As such, they will take daily classes with each artist, while they will alternate between artists for afternoon workshops. All workshop participants and artists, alongside Springboard Danse Montreal alumni, will be invited to the panel discussion and community gathering on July 9, 2023.

BIPOC Scholarships

Our various editions of SpringboardX are direct fundraising efforts for our organization. As such, although we have previously offered modest alumni discounts, we have, otherwise, required full tuition fees from each participant. While our fundraising efforts are paramount during this year of pause, we hope to diversify our avenues for fundraising and, in turn, prioritize the values that steer our organization above all else. In alignment with our intention to cultivate diversity, inclusion, and representation centered around racial inequity in dance, we are offering BIPOC scholarships for our upcoming edition of SpringboardX: skills + process, hosted at Gibney June 28 – July 2, 2023 and July 5 – 9, 2023. 

*BIPOC is intended to also include, but not limit to:
ALAANA (also ALANA) - African, Latinx, Asian, Arab, and Native American
AAPI – Asian American and Pacific Islander
Latino/a (also Hispanic) as well as Latine/x and Afro-Latino/a
Native American (Tribal and Urban) as well as Alaska Native, American Indians, Indigenous”
MENA – Middle East and North African
People of the Global Majority
People of the Global African Diaspora

For the purposes of this identification, we will use the term BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color). We recognize that language is fluid and the intersectional justice movement is redefining terminology regularly.

In harmony with racial equity, these scholarships are based upon financial need. Therefore, through the application form provided below, interested BIPOC individuals will be asked to provide a statement of need, which speaks to one’s current employment status, current annual income, recent changes to employment, number of dependents, current rent expenses, current debt, etc. Applicants whose gross income is equal to or below 225% of the Federal Poverty Level will then be eligible for a lottery selection process. In other words, upon confirmation of financial eligibility, the scholarships recipients will be selected at random.

Apply by Sunday, April 2, 2023 at 11:59pm EST.
All determinations will be relayed by Friday, April 7, 2023.
Scholarships must be claimed by Friday, April 14, 2023, which will require a nonrefundable deposit of $350.
