AQ Elite Scholars Program specializes in training students for dance competitions and performances cultivating excellence and artistry while fostering a culture of holistic development. Embark on a journey of artistic mastery with the AQ Elite Scholars Program, where we celebrate the dedication, passion, and potential of our dancers. AQ Dance is not just about winning accolades; it’s a nurturing ground for the holistic development of our students. We believe that the true essence of dance education extends far beyond the stage—it’s about cultivating the discipline, resilience, teamwork, and positive work ethics that form the bedrock of success in all of life’s endeavors.

Our scholarship program is AQ Dance’s heartfelt contribution to the dance community, a testament to our desire to nurture the next wave of elite dancers. We are devoted to offering our most deserving students a comprehensive support system to foster their growth as both dancers and individuals.

The triumphs of our AQ Scholars in competitions and public performances, where they have clinched top prizes, are a mere glimpse into the capabilities developed within the realms of our studio. Every pirouette and plié is infused with life skills that shape our students into versatile and robust characters, prepared to face the world with grace and determination.

Open exclusively to our current students, the AQ Elite Scholars Program is an odyssey that begins with the commitment to at least one dance module at our studio. Through annual auditions conducted by an external dance expert, we identify the luminaries who will receive year-long specialized training at subsidized cost, enhancing the rich tapestry of their dance education.

But the spotlight shines on more than just their technical abilities. As our scholars traverse the extensive dance genres offered by our diverse faculty, they also learn to sync in harmony with fellow dancers, appreciate the value of sustained effort, and emerge as team players who understand the strength in unity.

AQ Dance is proud to present this prestigious program across three levels, welcoming a broad range of ages into the fold:

  • Level 1 Scholars: Young aspirants aged 6 – 8 years, taking their first grand jeté into the world of dance.

  • Level 2 Scholars: Zealous dancers aged 9 – 12 years, perfecting their form and finding their rhythm.

  • Level 3 Scholars: Adolescent talents aged 13 – 15 years and above, refining their craft and preparing for the dance of life.

The AQ Elite Scholars Program is a holistic curriculum, a dance journey that goes beyond the traditional. It is here that our students don’t just learn to dance—they learn to live, lead, and succeed. Join us.
