Swing Buffalo strongly believes dancing is for everyone. We strive to support our community and want to specifically gear our efforts towards those who have been historically underrepresented, under-served and at many times blatantly hindered. Therefore, we are offering 2 full scholarships to people of color for our workshop.
By doing this, we intend to remove one of the three financial barriers (travel, admission, accommodation) to attending a swing dance event.
We do not intend to request of you, the scholarship recipients, for any volunteer work or promotion, in exchange for a pass.
We don’t seek to show you off, or to commodify your presence at the event. Please come and have fun!
We will not be announcing recipients of these scholarships before, during or after the event. Participants are allowed to discuss their participation and awardship at their personal discretion. Our intention is to actively support dancers of color and to actively fight against systematic and well-researched oppression. Any dancer who identifies as Black, Indigenous and/or Person of Color may apply, regardless of skill or level. We only hope that you will come learn and have fun!
If you are interested in a scholarship, simply contact us and ask!
