FCCA has several different scholarship opportunities.
Each year, FCCA holds a raffle and silent auction at our Holiday Show in December to raise money to award a dancer a dance scholarship for the following dance season.
This year, we raised enough money to be able to award TWO dancers a dance scholarship!!
The dancers and dancer’s parents fill out a scholarship questionnaire. The questionnaires are then given to outside people, not affiliated with FCCA. They, in turn, choose a winner, or in this year’s case, WINNERS!!
The winners of the 2017-2018 dance season studio scholarship are: Hannah Christian and Ashlynd Roberts!
This is Hannah’s 7th year dancing with FCCA. Hannah is a part of our FCCA dance team family!
This is Ashlynd’s 11th year dancing with FCCA. Ashlynd is a part of our FCCA dance team family!
The gift cards used for the raffle and silent auction are donations from generous local businesses and restaurants. The Silent Auction baskets are put together with donations from our wonderful dance families. Without these generous donations, this scholarship wouldn’t be possible.

William F Stephens’ “Follow Your Dreams” scholarship
Ms. Hollie’s father passed away last year. He has always been very supportive of her and her studio. He always told her to ‘Follow Her Dreams’.
To honor her father, we are starting a new scholarship called; ‘The William Stephen – Follow Your Dreams’ scholarship. This scholarship will be chosen by Ms. Hollie and her family and will be awarded to a dancer that they believe is following their dream of dance.
This dancer shows up to class on time, is always ready to learn, is always pushing themselves to do better, and is helpful to others.
The winner of the 1st annual “William F Stephens’ – Follow Your Dreams” scholarship is: Carlee Fiegl
This is Carlee’s 3rd year dancing with FCCA. Carlee is a part of our FCCA dance team family!
Each year, our dance teams attend JUMP in Orlando. JUMP is a 2 day dance convention and competition. The dancers attend classes with well-known dance instructors. The dancers are observed all weekend by the instructors and by Ms. Hollie. Each year, Ms Hollie picks 2 dancers that stood out during the convention. Each winner will receive half off of the next years JUMP convention fee. The winners for the 2017 JUMP scholarship are Kendall Sweat and Elle Ferguson.
This is Kendall’s 4th year dancing with FCCA. Kendall is a part of our FCCA dance team family!
