SPOKE THE HUB (STH) is offering both full and partial scholarships to young dancers aged 8 to 18 years, with or without previous experience, based on financial need and merit. The audition will take the form of a modern dance class and will include warm-up, improvisation, and combinations across the floor. (Students do not need to prepare any material in advance). Dance scholarships will be awarded for classes in Modern Dance Technique, Ballet,
Improvisation/Choreography/Performance, and others to be selected.

The fall term for scholarship students will begin Monday, September 12, 2011 and run through February, 2012.

Teenagers may also be considered for work/study internships in our office. Applicants must call to set up an appointment and families must bring a copy of their most recent tax return to the audition. For further details and to receive an application form, please call: (718) 408-3234, or email us at spoke@spokethehub.org.

Students involved in dance at STH have plenty of opportunities to create and perform their own original choreography throughout the year. They also work with professional guest artists, and are often invited to participate in SPOKE THE HUB's professional adult productions.

Over the years, SPOKE THE HUB's Young Artists have earned additional scholarships to the American Dance Festival, the Alvin Ailey School, and the Feld Ballet, in addition to colleges throughout the country. They have also performed with STH's adult company at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, at the World Trade Center, and at Lincoln Center, as well as performing independently at the Kitchen, P.S. 122, DTW, and with Meredith Monk/The House

All youth company members are required to take a minimum of two technique classes a week at SPOKE THE HUB, and must be available for occasional additional weekend rehearsals and performances throughout the year. This pre-professional program is geared toward developing tomorrow's most outstanding and creative theater artists.
Spoke the Hub, founded by Artistic Director Elise Long, has been trailblazing in Brooklyn and beyond since 1979. Called a "neighborhood treasure," "cultural pioneers" and a community "staple" by the press and public, Spoke offers a wide spectrum of classes, performances, and special community events for all ages, 7 days a week, all year round.
