Meet our dancers!
Get to know these young artists below, and where they are in Flight Path's four year, tuition-free program.
Between studio rental, guests artists, performance outings, costumes, books, and so much more, one season with Flight Path is valued at just over $9,000 per dancer. That means a total cost of nearly $40,000 for one dancer to complete all four years of the Flight Path program. Because we believe in nurturing talent regardless of means, each of our dancers are able to access our training and resources at no cost.
