Rising Star Endowment
we help them shine, you help them rise
The Lake Tahoe's Shining Stars newest program invites donors to become personally invested in the successes of a Star. Each year 1-2 students ages 9-17 will be chosen as our Rising Star(s) or Shooting Star. This student will be chosen not only on their technical abilities but on their overall attitude, commitment & passion for the performing arts. This is a student or students we feel possess the ability and desire to continue dancing into their future but could possibly use a means by which to achieve this.
Students who receive the Rising Star sponsorship are awarded a full scholarship to attend weekly classes, costumes for recitals, one convention plus travel for the year or a portion of a summer program, plus two tickets to the spring recital.
Students who receive the Shooting Star sponsorship are awarded a full scholarship to attend weekly classes, costumes for the recital, one local workshop for the year, plus two tickets to the spring recital.
