Announcing The Pride of Phoenix Rising Program!

Phoenix Rising Dance Studios was founded with the idea that all children interested should be able get a professional dance education, regardless of their economic or social situations. Therefore, we are announcing the Pride of Phoenix Rising Program, a scholarship program in conjunction with Phoenix Rising Dance Company. Through this program, we will provide two weekly classes at no charge for children who’s families wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford studio tuition. One class will be for dancers from 6-9 years of age, and the second will be for 10-13 year old dancers. These classes will be held on Saturdays throughout the summer, and each class will be limited to 12 students. Interested participants will go through a brief interview process, and will be expected to show proof of need to determine eligibility. Acceptance to the program will be based on hardship, dedication, and willingness to commit to completing the program. At the end of the program, one student from each class will be selected to join Phoenix Rising Dance Studio’s Performance Team on a tuition-free basis. For specific class times please visit our website at Please contact Will at 317-820-5820 for more information and to find out how to begin the application process.

Our Responsibility at Phoenix Rising Dance

We believe at Phoenix Rising Dance…..


……that students should equate their identity with who they truly are on the inside, and that their feelings, emotions, and social cognition are important to their growth as young individuals!

In the world, today, there much distraction and identification with what we have, look like, and how we are perceived by others on social media. It is imperative for teachers, and those who have the privilege to mentor, to guide responsibly.

Dance has the transformative power to allow us to truly experience being, mentally, physically, and spiritually. It allows us to connect with the essence of ourselves, and the essence of others in a way that is not warped by marketing, advertisements, and personal agendas.

In that respect, our students are able to build the confidence, and self character that will allow them to make responsible decisions in life. The spark of creativity and individuality within them is nurtured, and strengthened. Confidence leads to commitment and courage leads to conviction and vice versa. This allows them to become comfortable with themselves, and confident in the face of adversity so that when the time comes, they can be able to lead themselves and quite possibly others in a direction that remains true.
