“Kristy loved dancing with VA so much, more than anything. She really found a passion for dance and found herself in it. With VA we have set up a scholarship in Kristy’s name. She would have wanted dance to be accessible for anyone who wants to move. “ – Burgess Family
VA, along with the Burgess family, believe everyone deserves a safe space to dance, explore, express and connect with others. However, we recognize that dance class is a privilege that is not often attainable for everyone. Kristy’s scholarship is here for those who need just a little bit more support with registration fees.
In May 2021, the Burgess women and VA hosted an afternoon of dance to celebrate the light and love of Kristy. Registration was by donation and these donations contributed to the scholarship fund.
If you would like to access this scholarship, register on our “register for a dance program” page and in the “method of payment” section, indicate that you would like to use Kristy’s Scholarship. Our staff will email you upon registration and work with you to ensure you have access to programming.
