NSAL invites ballet dancers to participate in the 2017 National Awards Competition. The First Prize is $12,000, and other significant cash prizes are available. The National Awards Competition will be held during the NSAL Annual Meeting in Boca Raton, Florida, from May 29 – June 3, 2017.
Contestants must first compete on the chapter level. Each chapter will hold its competition with individual dates. The first place chapter finalist may then proceed to the National Competition, where one contestant will win $12,000 and a series of other awards.
To compete at the chapter level, submit a completed application to the chapter that is closest geographically to your home or school. See below for the contact person or website of the chapter that is closest to you. Local chapters will pay travel, hotel, and conference registration expenses for the chapter winner to attend the National Competition.
