An Estelle Dennis Scholarship Award offers a rare and broadly useful opportunity to support and reinforce the career paths of male professional aspirants who are ballet-trained, ages 13-25, and on the brink of their careers. A recipient may use the award as a student at a well-recognized school, or as a trainee/apprentice, or entrant member of a professional company. He also may use a portion of the cash award for sorely needed dance-related expenses. Past award winners are now dancing with BalletMet, Boston Ballet, Carolina Ballet, Colorado Ballet, Miami City Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Sacramento Ballet, the Stuttgart Ballet, and Tulsa Ballet.

Auditions will be held Sunday, April 2, 2023, hosted by the Peabody Institute:

17 East Mount Vernon Place, Baltimore, MD 21202. Registration starts at 11:00 am (ages 13-15) and at 12:30 pm (ages 16-25). Auditions will be held from 12:00-4:30 PM. Each audition will be followed by a brief discussion from 4:00-5:00 pm with the adjudicating committee.
