We believe that dance education should be accessible to all members of our community, and the Goh Ballet Canada Society is working to remove all barriers that may prevent promising students from accessing the training that they need to pursue a flourishing career in dance. There are currently two funding streams available as part of the Canadian Masterclass Series:
The National Scholarship Award is sponsored by the Goh Ballet Canada Society. Any student taking part in the Masterclass is automatically eligible. Criteria for awarding scholarships is based on level of output, performance and technical ability as demonstrated during the class. Awardees are selected solely at the discretion of Ms Goh. A total amount of $5,000CAD will be awarded in scholarships to participants across the country.
The Diversity Scholarship is available to gifted and persevering students who belong to or identify with underrepresented populations in the art of classical ballet. Goh Ballet Canada Society recognizes that racial, gender and physical biases may prevent promising students from accessing resources to further their dance goals. The Diversity Scholarship, with a total of $5000 to be awarded, is the start of initiatives to foster inclusion and diversity in the art form of ballet and provide those with the will a way to pursue excellence.
