.....There are things that my parents have to put aside so that I can progress forward in my dance career, and I know that a scholarship will provide my parents with a bit of relief so that they can continue to provide for my ambitions. 

.....I know that through financial support, such as your scholarship, that I will be able to continue to move forward and put in the training that I need to become a professional dancer.  I know that I can be and can provide the world with yet another great dancer for them to watch and to appreciate the art of dance.
