Dancewave’s Ambassador Scholarship Award (DASA) awards 100% annual tuition to outstanding students participating in Dancewave's educational programs. This prestigious Award Program is designed to provide dedicated students with educational and leadership development opportunities at Dancewave, providing transferable skills that support the development of mature and responsible young adults.

Dancewave students are nominated for the DASA Program in the spring of each year by Dancewave's educational programs faculty. Nominees and their parents/guardians are interviewed by Dancewave's Executive Artistic Director and Director of Education. Awards are announced in June.
