Scholarship Program

The Tara Hughes Memorial Scholarship

In memory of our friend and fellow dancer Tara Hughes, we are offering a full weekend scholarship to I *Heart* Balboa.  This scholarship is for a dancer who is especially thoughtful & kind, has gone out of their way to help someone in need, or who has made a difference in the lives of others in their community. Rather than applying for this scholarship for yourself, we are asking the community to nominate someone to receive it who embodies the qualities we all loved so much in Tara.

Nominate a dancer to receive this scholarship for 2020 here

Last day to nominate a dancer is May 1st, 2020

We will select a recipient by mid-May 2020

Donate to the Scholarship Fund
We aim to provide 1 to 2 scholarships per year, plus small travel stipends.

If you'd like to donate a few dollars toward the scholarship fund, you can do so when you register for our event or by sending a PayPal payment to with a note to let us know it is for the Scholarship Fund.

RVA Swing LLC is not a 501c3 organization, so unfortunately donations are not tax deductible.
