At the end of the scholarship audition, the finalists will be announced and asked to come back for an "Improv Line" during the Dance-Off on the final day of the event as the last round in the audition process. Scholarship winners are announced at the Dance-Off award ceremony.

At check-in, teachers will receive wristbands for each student registered for convention as well as an audition number that must be worn in all auditions and on the last day of the event for the “Improv Line” should that dancer be chosen as a scholarship finalist.

    Scholarships Awarded: VIP Dance 2020, Visceral Chicago Intensive, Steps on Broadway, Broadway Dance Center, 412: The Intensive, and DC Tap Festival!
