THE HERRANG SCHOLARSHIP 2014

An Announcement on new direction

In 2010, the Herrang Scholarship was established to promote the growth of Lindy Hop (in  number, in artistic depth and in its spirit) – over the past 3 years, we had subsidised various  deserving individuals to the Herrang Dance Camp in Sweden. We are extremely glad to see the growth in these individuals, and the many ways they have contributed back to the Lindy community.

Following a review, the Herrang Scholarship committee decided to change direction.

Instead of subsidising overseas dance camps, we would like to encourage more local outreach projects, as an effort to grow the size of the Swing community. More people should benefit from knowing the music and the dances – we know, because we have.

To grow the swing community in Singapore , Herrang Scholarship will subsidise projects that promote the dances and music of the swing era (eg Lindy Hop, Balboa, Charleston, Tap).

Such projects include outreach events, public performances and marketing tools that introduce the  dances and music to newcomers (eg Project RABBIT ).

– Expenditure that directly benefits the community rather than individuals

eg rental of equipment and venue, rather than purchase of equipment.

– Ad hoc projects rather than recurring commitments

eg one-off concerts, rather than ongoing regular socials

– There is no cap on the number of projects supported, but the total fund is up to S$2,000 annually, on a first-approved first-disbursed basis.
