CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PULSE PROTÉGÉ SCHOLARSHIP!
The PULSE Protégé Program is an opportunity for dancers to train with our world-renowned choreographers in every regional city with free tuition for a full calendar year upon the payment of their membership dues! These dancers also have the opportunity to work with the staff in order to gain perspective on all avenues of the dance industry. Dancers are selected in each level during all of our regional city tour stops. All PULSE Protégés for the season are invited to attend our summer workshop in NYC to compete for the title of Elite Protégé.
Our members will support the program by paying an annual membership fee of $150. This covers administrative services and helps us to provide the additional benefits for your exciting yearlong scholarship!
The Protégé scholarship entitles you to attend any and all PULSE regional workshops for one year once you’ve paid your $150 annual membership fee.
While attending The PULSE as a Protégé, you will have the privilege of assisting our extraordinary Faculty (at their discretion) during their classes throughout the weekend.
As a Protégé you will be a part of our team! You’ll gain invaluable work experience in the dance industry. As part of our Crew, you will have the chance to see how a huge tour like The PULSE is constructed, and establish important contacts in the dance world that will serve you for the duration of your career. This is a great tool for your resume!
Broadway Dance Center Discount
Each Protégé will receive a personalized BDC PULSE PROTÉGÉ Club Card, complete with name and photo, that will entitle the winner to the special scholarship rate of $18 per class. The card will be good for one year from the date the scholarship was awarded, and can be used an unlimited number of times at BDC within the year.
Each Protégé will have their headshot featured on our Protégé Website. This is a tool that’s utilized by many faculty members and casting agents when hiring for projects.
PULSE Fashion Show
Dancers will be chosen on site after classes end on Saturday, for the chance to learn and dance in The PULSE Fashion Show. This number is sponsored by The PULSE, Urban Empire, Brian Says Be Free, Brian Friedman Performance Line, Discount Dance Supply, and Young Lions. This is a great performance opportunity for those selected to represent the sponsored brands on The PULSE Stage!
Summer Gala Invitational
As a Protégé you are automatically invited to be a part of our exclusive PULSE Gala Invitational in New York City in July of 2016. Select PULSE Faculty and Guest Artists will set pieces on dancers to be performed at the Final Night Gala.
PULSE Elite Protégé
During our PULSE Summer NYC our Faculty will choose twelve Protégés from this regional season to be the 2016-2017 Elite PULSE Protégés. If you are chosen, you will be asked to go “on tour” and assist with The PULSE for the 2016-2017 season. The PULSE will provide a $1,000 check towards travel expenses for two Intermediate Elite Protégés, one Advanced Elite Protégé and one Pro Elite Protégé. Flight and accommodations will be provided for the one Advanced Elite Protégé and one Pro Elite Protégé. See our elite page for more information!
As a PULSE Protégé, you now have access to special PULSE Protégé clothing made just for you! At the PULSE online store, you will find track jackets, sweat pants and more with a PULSE Protégé logo to recognize you when you attend the event. The merchandise may NOT be worn in the ballrooms during classes, you may wear it outside of the classroom and at our Summer events. You will have specific colored scholarship numbers that will identify you to the faculty during classes. The PULSE faculty wants to be able to pick you out, but not alienate the other dancers! You will also be receiving a “Protégé Crew” T-shirt in your first city that you will wear while assisting the staff during your work shifts.
