Since we started Liberate Artists has been threaded in providing equitable and inclusive dance experiences. 2020 has been difficult for us all, and even as we ourselves continue to push forward after not having any large experiences since 2019, we still want to do everything in our power to support dancers. Introducing our 2021 Phoenix Fire Awards and Scholarships. Learn more below and if you are inspired donate to Always, Enough Foundation to continue breaking the economic barriers to access for all kids in performing arts education! All scholarships at Liberate Artists are based on need and how dancers show up and show out in the classroom and out. Talent is subjective, kindness is objective. All scholarships and awards will be announced during the Purple Showcase at Phoenix Fire on July 31st 2021. Purchase tickets here.
