Make a Gift to Support Your Favorite Team

Dancing with the Stars: Berklee Edition returns on January 27, 2023! Our annual competition features some of Berklee College of Music's and Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s most well-known personalities competing against each other on the dance floor while raising much-needed funds for scholarships for Dance Division students. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Dance Division Faculty Award, a scholarship fund that provides financial support to continuing dance students in high academic standing with a demonstrated financial need. This scholarship is named in honor of the beloved faculty of the Dance Division, who have personally committed to serving as the founding donors of this initiative.

Dance Division Chair Mila Thigpen explains, “Not only does Dancing with the Stars raise money for student scholarships, it also engages the Dance Division with the greater Berklee community. It’s a celebration and demonstration of our Dance Division’s core values, which include artistic excellence, collaboration, and the understanding that dance builds community.”

Each contestant, paired with a dance faculty member, will be competing to raise the most funds to benefit the Dance Division Faculty Award. To make a donation on behalf of a specific contestant, please click their name below, and be sure to follow along on the leaderboard to see who's in the lead! If you’d like to stay neutral and support the fund without selecting a dancer, please click the “Make Your Gift Today” button above.
