BRANDON, FL: Brandon Ballet is pleased to announce the auditions for the Richard Munro Memorial Scholarship Fund. Mr. Richard was a tremendous asset to the Brandon Ballet as a coach, choreographer, and consultant. The establishment of this Scholarship Fund will allow us to honor his memory in a meaningful way.
Each year, Brandon Ballet will conduct an audition for serious training ballet dancers to determine the Scholarship winner(s). A guest judge (or judges) will perform the judging. Based upon the judge’s recommendation, Brandon Ballet will award one winner a prize of $250.00-$500.00. Dancers aged 13 -18 on the audition date are eligible; the recipient will be someone who has not received this scholarship in a previous year. The monies shall be utilized to further the recipient’s dance education by helping to offset the cost (up to 100%) of any Summer Dance Intensive Program to which the recipient is accepted and attends during the calendar year the Scholarship is awarded. Brandon Ballet will send the monies directly to the program of the winner’s choice on behalf of the winner.
