Ballet West is committed to nurturing diverse young talent through the renowned Frederick Quinney Lawson Ballet West Academy. Each year, the Academy provides approximately $400,000 in scholarships to gifted young artists from all over the world.

By supporting the Ballet West Academy Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund, you are providing young dancers of all backgrounds with equitable access to the highest caliber of ballet instruction.
