EducationMatters is pleased to offer a grant opportunity for dance programs/artist in residencies through the Kaiti Perras Love of Dance Memorial Fund. The Kaiti Perras Love of Dance Memorial Fund was established in 2014 in loving memory of Kaiti by her family. Kaiti loved all forms of dance, both as a participant and more recently as a teacher. The purpose of the fund is to introduce and inspire passion for school-aged children to the beauty of dance in Calgary Board of Education or Calgary Catholic School District schools.

There is approximately $5,600 available to distribute in 2024.

Application deadline is Friday, May 31, 2024 at 4:30 PM. The successful applicant(s) will be selected by Kaiti’s family.
