For each Nuance class we provide a few scholarship slots for those who cannot afford to take the class at the full rate. These are the "Pay what you can" registration tickets. We ask that if you are able to pay the full amount, please do, as it will allow those who have less to take the class at the reduced rate. Additionally if you are able to donate above the full rate through the Donate to Pay What You Can option before checkout, it will enable us to open up more scholarship slots for the class. Fifty percent of what you pay goes to the artist.
