23rd Annual Esther Geoffrey
Young Dancers’ Scholarship Competition

Tickets are available at the door

Both competitions and Peridance training program audition will be held at Chipeta Elementary, 2340 Ramsgate Terrace, 80919

The Twenty-third Annual Esther Geoffrey Young Dancers’ Scholarship Competition in the categories of Ballet and Jazz is coming on Tuesday, April 2, 2019.  The competition was created to honor Esther Geoffrey’s numerous dance contributions to the Colorado Springs community since the 1960’s.

This year we are adding one $500 scholarship, in each category, in honor of Kris Faricy, a longtime supporter of dance who passed away in 2018.

Colorado Springs Dance Theatre (CSDT) invites all intermediate and above-level dance students, ages 11-18 within the Pikes Peak Region to submit an application to compete in the Jazz or Ballet competitions. Ballet Master Class and Scholarship Competition on Tuesday, April 2, 2019 can be used as an opportunity to audition for Peridance Capezio Center Teen Summer Intensive (ages 13-17).

Both competitions will provide a 90-minute Master Class, a time for selection of scholarship recipients (5 per competition), and an awards ceremony. Dancers will be judged on technical proficiency and performance potential.

An exciting addition has also been made to this year’s Esther Geoffrey Scholarship Competition. Peridance will also hold auditions for their BLUEPRINT Summer Intensive and two-year training program (ages 17-25) at the Peridance Capezio Center immediately after the Ballet Master Class and Scholarship Competition on Tuesday, April 2nd.

Both Master classes will be taught and adjudicated by Peridance Executive Director Yarden Rodin-Van Heerden and company dancer Katie Currier.
