How to Donate

The Friends of Dance work to provide two scholarships for students of dance at the University of Mary Washington to honor the past and future of the Mary Washington dance community. After over 20 years of awarding scholarships, we have given more than 55 scholarships with a total of over $42,000 dollars to students who are active in dance at Mary Washington and in the larger community. Every contribution matters.
