Rising Stars Scholarship

Supported by a grant from the Reat Griffin Underwood Rising Stars Fund, the Rising Stars Scholarship was established to help young people pursue their passion for the performing arts. Reat loved singing, dancing, and performing and both the fund and scholarship honor his spirit and memory. Applicants are applying for assistance with dance, tumbling or private voice or piano lessons. To download the scholarship application, click here.


Encore "level" classes are for dancers in 1st grade and up. Dancers are placed in classes based on a combination of dance experience and age. We use the following age range and take dance ability into consideration, as well:

  • Level 1: 1st-3rd Grades
  • Level 2: 4th-7th Grades
  • Level 3: 8th Grade +
  • Acro levels are based on age and the requirements of the Acrobatic Arts syllabus
