Sheena Villa Scholarship Fund

In Loving Memory of Miss Sheena Villa
3/23/81 – 3/24/06

Miss Sheena represented everything that makes us passionate about dance. She shared her passion with Expression of Dance and its students for 6 years and in that time she shared so much of her herself and her talent with us. Celebrate Miss Sheena through our words and photos so we can always remember how much she touched our lives, in dance and beyond.

 The Sheena Villa Scholarship Fund

All EOD students in grades 9-12 are eligible to apply for the Sheena Villa Scholarship. We encourage students to participate by submitting a written essay of “Why dance is your passion”, along with a short video of you dancing. The SVSF committee chooses the application(s) and a scholarship check will be given (amount TBD) to the student(s) to put towards their dance/acro/twirling education at Expression of Dance, or for the Senior student(s), it will go towards your college expenses. Any student who receives the scholarship will be recognized at the Sunday matinee recital, prior to the beginning of the recital show. If a student has applied in a previous year, but did not receive the scholarship, he/she is still eligible to apply the next year.

To contribute to the scholarship fund:  All are welcome to attend our annual Spaghetti Dinner for Sheena in March or donations can be made payable to The Sheena Villa Scholarship Fund. Please submit your donation to the studio office or mail to:
