At the end of January, three of our GCAA dance students (Joel Breeden, senior; Brianna Ford, senior; Samantha York, sophomore) were presented with their Dance St. Louis Dance Career Awards at the Touhill Performing Arts Center.
Recipients of the Dance Career Award are offered guidance and support towards more intensive dance training and ultimately towards careers in the dance world. Awardees are also given assistance with preparation for auditions, counseling on whether or which college to pursue, request for letters of recommendation, connections in the professional dance world and more. Dance St. Louis may also contribute financially and help seek support for award winners from dance schools, colleges and professional dance companies.
The Dance Career Award recipients are selected from hundreds of students participating in the Monsanto Dance Education Residency Program — the largest of Dance St. Louis’ education
