Lesson Scholarship Program Description
Drafted: April 9th, 2008
Modified: Jan 5th, 2009
Purpose: Acknowledging the following issues within the San Antonio Swing Dance Society: The limited size of the San Antonio Swing scene requires the Society to induce more interaction with other scenes and other instructors to bring more swing vocabulary and variety into San Antonio. The Society has a limited number of instructors, and therefore limited capacity to do advanced lessons; the Society needs to invest in improving our students beyond the lessons that are offered in San Antonio. The San Antonio Swing Dance Society is creating the SASDS Lesson Scholarship Program.
Description: This program will sponsor members of the San Antonio Swing Dance Society to attend organized lessons in Austin in order to transfer dancing skills and different personalities back to the San Antonio Swing scene.
Requirements and Restrictions: In order for a student to be sponsored by the society, they must fulfill the following terms:
- Students must be at a skill level beyond the classes normally offered by the Society. This requirement will be determined by a majority vote by the Board of Directors.
- Students must enroll for an entire multi-week series of classes with an approved program (currently the only approved program is “Four on the Floor” in Austin) and pay for classes up front. Students will be reimbursed at the conclusion of the class.
- Students must prove their attendance to every class in the series to be eligible for reimbursement. Use the Lesson Scholarship Reimbursement Form.
- Students must attend all weekly Swing Social with the Society during the period between the first and last class in the series, unless permission is obtained from the Board to miss a social. The Society is not responsible for transportation or any other incidentals incurred traveling to and from the classes.
To apply for this program, please contact a board member.
