Danceable Feast


Scholarship and Work Exchange Opportunities

There are at least 3 possibilities for financial assistance for Danceable Feast. The first is Donna Ranae scholarship, a Danceable Feast-only scholarship.  The second is a work exchange at camp. The third possibility is a scholarship from your local community, such as PCDC.

Donna Ranae

Donna Ranae was one of the founders of Danceable Feast and a beloved member of the dance community. She passed away in the summer of 2008. The Donna Ranae Scholarship Fund was established to honor her love of dancing and its significance in building community. Dancers have contributed to a fund in her memory to make the Danceable Feast camp accessible to those who might not otherwise be able to participate due to financial need.

We welcome contributions to the Donna Ranae Fund. To help, please send a check to:

To apply for the Donna Ranae Scholarship:

We are happy to be able to provide several scholarships this year. Recipients will get a “lottery free” space in camp and a $115 scholarship, paid at camp.

Please tell us in writing what the dance community means to you and how it has inspired you in your life. Please, no more than 500 words.

Email your essay as a PDF (preferred) or Word document to Tyler.
The remainder of your registration application should be mailed as per the instructions on the Registration tab. On the Registration form you will find a question asking if you are interested in a scholarship. Please choose Donna Ranae from the drop down list.

We will be accepting responses from now until the end of the registration window on August 1. You do not need to wait until July 1 to send your registration form if you are applying for a Donna Scholarship. We will review the scholarship applications before the lottery and if we are not able to award you a scholarship this year, we will place your name in the lottery pool for camp.

We look forward to hearing from you! Please also help us get the word out to anyone you think might enjoy this opportunity!
