A New Scholarship In Dance at UMW

Since 1993, the Friends of Dance has awarded over $30,000 in dance scholarships to students at Mary Washington to honor two former dance professors at the college, Claudia Moore Read and Sonja Dragomanovic Haydar. These women shaped the beloved dance department at the college, now university, and their legacy continues to extend beyond their students and peers into the lives of current dance students at UMW. We are proud to announce a third scholarship in the name of two women who continue to prove their dedication to the study of dance at the University of Mary Washington:

Florence Ridderhof (MWC '50) and Vicky Wilder (MWC '80).

These women are exceptionally dedicated to the continuity of dance and it's legacy at the University of Mary Washington, and we are so excited to announce a scholarship in their names to honor and celebrate their work!
