Through fundraising events, the youth ballet is able to provide limited funding in the form of scholarships to those dancers who are in need of assistance or who have excelled in the company with their talent.

The funding provides scholarships to attend professional dance programs and camps such as Joffrey Ballet, Burklyn Ballet Theatre, American Ballet Theatre, The Washington Ballet, Houston Ballet Company, The Rock School, The Virginia School of Arts and the City Ballet School.

If you would like to be a volunteer or sponsor a dancer, send an e-mail to PCYBC@PCYBC.com.
