Scholarship Recipients

2021 Scholarship Recipients

IDTANA Scholarship Recipients are typically recognized at an awards night during the North American Irish Dance Championships (NAIDC). Since the 2021 NAIDC was split into the US National Irish Dance Championships and the Canadian National Irish Dance Championships due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were unable to honor these young men and women as usual. This video montage celebrates the 2021 IDTANA Scholarship Recipients. Not only do we wish them the best as they continue their education, but also thank them for their involvement in Irish dancing.

Congratulations to the 2021 IDTANA Scholarship Recipients!
