NATALIE PAQUETTE SCHOLARSHIP
The Natalie Paquette Scholarship was created in 2015 in memory of our beautiful dance angel. Natalie danced at Expressions for nearly 10 years before her life was cut short due to an unknown heart defect. Natalie was a bright light of joy at the studio, always kind, always sweet to everyone. This child always had a smile on her face. Scholarships will be awarded to a select number of applicants who exhibit the qualities that Natalie had: Strong Academic Standing, Good Moral Character, Artistic, Citizenship/Community Involvement. Applicants must complete this online application, re-enroll for the next season, and submit the supporting documents shown in the application prior to MAY 1st. Recipient(s) selected will be announced at the Spring Showcase and awards will be given at that time. Recipients will NOT be notified in advance. Therefore, it is recommended that all applicants bring proper dress with them on performance day (in the event they are presented with the award). This scholarship was created to honor the memory of Natalie Paquette and to provide dance education opportunity for dancers with similar characteristics, as displayed by Natalie.
