Scholarship Through Facebook

November 28, 2001

Sometimes it seems like we spend our lives on Facebook—we chronicle our days, stalk our crushes, connect with long lost friends. Why not put social media to use to win a scholarship?


Paul Taylor Dance Company has partnered with Talenthouse to find two talented dancers to award scholarships for the Taylor Summer Intensive program in New York. On the site, you can submit a video (up to 90 seconds long) that displays your love of dance—no matter the genre—and why you deserve to study at the Taylor Summer Intensive. Talenthouse has an integrated Facebook platform where anyone can vote for the video they like best. The top 20 videos will then be reviewed by Paul Taylor, two PTDC dancers, the director of the school, and Matthew Diamond, director of Taylor documentary “Dancemaker” as well as “So You Think You Can Dance.”
