Beverly Miller Dance Scholarship

For almost 50 years, Beverly Miller and her husband Norman dedicated their adult lives to making Costume Gallery an industry leader while serving the dance community. Bev loved Costume Gallery and was inspired by the wonderful dancers and teachers she met. In 1999 Beverly passed away after battling breast cancer.

It is very important to her family and colleagues that Beverly’s memory lives on and her legacy continues to be associated with giving young dancers a helping hand.

Beverly knew firsthand the personal and social values gained by participating in dance programs. As an investment in the future of dance, Costume Gallery has established the Beverly Miller Dance Scholarships in her honor. Costume Gallery awards ten thousand dollars each November for students to put toward their dance education. Nineteen scholarships are awarded every year—one $1,000 award and eighteen awards of $500 each. The studio owner of the one $1,000 scholarship winner will receive a $100 Costume Gallery gift certificate and the studio owners of the eighteen $500 scholarship winners will each receive a $50 Costume Gallery gift certificate.

Each applicant must describe their passion for the art, their desire to excel and how they would use the funds to further their dance studies in a 120-150 word essay along with teacher recommendations. If you or someone you know would be a great candidate for the Beverly Miller Scholarship please apply below.
