Ann Reinking Scholarship Program

The Ann Reinking Scholarship will be awarded annually to a young dancer moving to NYC to help support them in their artistic endeavors. Inspired by Annie’s own story of moving to New York with little more than a dream, this scholarship will provide monetary support and mentorship by creating community, a home base and network of people in the industry to set them on a path of success and give them a leg up in the business. The program is devoted to creating this legacy for Annie that will carry on her humanity, love and artistry not only as a dancer, but as a choreographer and collaborator in the next generation of artists.

Inclusivity and accessibility are paramount to Off The Lane. The scholarship is open to any race, gender or ethnicity.

A $5,000 scholarship will be awarded once-a-year to a young aspiring dancer with BIG dreams in the BIG city! The Winner will be announced on November 8th, 2021 at the Empower Artist Fundraiser.
