Help support the next generation through scholarships

About the Project

DC NEXT introduces a new generation to possibilities for future careers, using their talents to guide them! Now in its 9th year, DC NEXT has been a springboard program for talented, driven teens to hone their knowledge of the business of dance!

Our program is a 3-week summer intensive workshop with career building classes to help our students become successful both Onstage and Backstage.

Your donation helps deserving students attend the DC NEXT Summer program held at Georgia Tech's DramaTech theater, July 6th -27th. Your generous donation would go toward providing studio space, performance space, supplies, and dance classes to 25 high school age.

These students use the skills they learn with DC NEXT to vision their next phase in life - College/Careers/Dreams

Help us "Introduce the Next Generation!"
