Gaynor Minden Scholarship Essay Contest - Why it is important to put your thoughts into words

Gaynor Minden Scholarship Essay Contest - Why it is important to put your thoughts into words

We have been promoting our Gaynor Minden Essay Contest this past month. Young dancers may wonder why putting your thoughts about dance and community into words is important. 

Dance is a beautiful modality of expressing oneself by telling a story via movement. This may be a personal story or the story of another. Either way, the audience, the performers, the choreographers are all touched - but in their own personal perspective. Putting your thoughts and emotions into words is another beautiful modality of expression. Processing these thoughts and then articulating them helps you develop your own personal perspective.

We would like to hear from you. Your perspective about how dance enhances your community will help others understand and think about this very important issue. The arts are important to every community - help share the emotion with your words.

The deadline for essays has been extended to 8/21. Essays need to be a minimum of 500 words. Please send your perspective via an entry to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
