Thank you to all who joined us for this extraordinary winter intensive and a special thank you to Gillian Murphy who directed Dance Anew 2022, the outstanding all-star faculty, and surprise guest artist, Misty Copeland, who generously spent an hour with Princeton Ballet School students answering questions and providing priceless advice.

Dance Anew 2022 Scholarship

Offered by Princeton Ballet School

2 full tuition scholarships awarded (value $350 per scholarship): 1 in-house and 1 Zoom (worldwide) access

Contest end date: December 1st, 2021 (This competition is now closed)

Congratulations to scholarship winners Melinda Wang and Ava Ramirez and Thank you to everyone for your beautiful submissions- it was a joy to see you waltz and to read your inspiring captions!

To enter, dancers meeting the winter intensive criteria videoed and posted themselves on Instagram dancing the same combination in Gillian’s post and tagged @gillianemurphy and @princetonballetschool. They also included a brief statement in their caption as to their dance goals/aspirations for 2022, a favorite inspiring quote, or what they hoped to get out of this intensive. 2 scholarship winners were then chosen by Gillian based on execution, artistry, and attitude.

This promotion was in no way sponsored, endorsed, or administered by, or associated with, Instagram. Submission were posted during the timeframe starting November 12, 2021 through December 1, 2021 at midnight. Scholarship awards do not include housing. Thank you again to all the wonderful dancers who participated!
