Educational Grants

D.E.A.R provides several types of assistant programs to professional dancers. Currently we have three grant programs; Emergency Assistance Grant, Extended Educational Grant and our Career Enhancement Grant. We work closely with local unions, SAG & AFTRA, Dancers Alliance, professional dance agencies, dance studios, ballet companies, all dance media outlets. Consider us a social service for professional dancers. We also provide counselors, mentors and have an Extended Learning Program (ELP), staffed to assist dancers. Our staff assess one's level of academic achievement and implements individual mentoring plans with specific goals.

- We have partnered with the professional dance community to raise awareness
- We plan to host several annual events to raise funding
- We are committed to serving ANYONE in need regardless of race, religious or
political persuasion.
