The Dance Student Association (DSA) is a registered student organization meant to foster a supportive dance community at the University of Washington. Our mission is to promote and facilitate community within the UW Department of Dance by creating opportunities for peer support and artistic development. We support an active student body which encourages individual and unique forms of expression, while achieving a close sense of community composed of students who dance. Every year, the DSA awards scholarships to a few students for their involvement in the UW Department of Dance. Funds are acquired through DSA events and programs and the scholarship amounts vary year to year.
