Christine O’Riada Performing Arts Scholarship
Christine O’Riada had a passion for dance and for performance. Performance isn’t only limited to a show. It includes classwork, competition, as well as performing on stage. She encouraged dancers to reach their goals with Irish dance, no matter if it was to have fun, perform in front of an audience, be a top competitor, become a teacher, or all of the above. Ms. Christine never wanted a dancer to stop doing something they loved because of financial strain. This scholarship is open to all Irish dancers age 10-18. This scholarship should be used to further your pursuit of Irish dance by paying for class, a new costume, competition expenses or other dance related expense.
Please answer these questions thoughtfully and directly. Application must be submitted by August 1st.
