How to get Maria Taglioni Dance Scholarship

Maria Taglioni Scholarship - Dance

4 Scholarships of €2000 (Study Abroad Program students) / €1400 (AEF Certificate Program students) each for the AEF Dance Program "Maria Taglioni"

Maria Taglioni is considered the greatest dancer of the nineteenth century, and the personification of the Romantic movement. She was the first to understand the innovative scope of the pointework technique, transforming it from a purely virtuoso technique to a substantially expressive aspect, and thus placing it at the basis of the romantic dance style. We also owe the tutu costume to her. 

We offer this scholarship to a deserving AEF student who exhibits:
❚ Passion about pursuing a career in Dance Performance and or Management;
❚ An understanding of the work it takes to succeed in the international performing arts world;
❚ A strong personal essay, and recommendation from a professor or academic advisor;
❚ Academic transcripts.
