The Jill Mino Memorial Scholarship Awards

In August 2004, The School of Contemporary Dancers established the Jill Mino Memorial Entrance Scholarship.

Ms. Mino was a member of the School’s faculty for over twenty years and a teacher of dance for Westwood Collegiate.  As a teacher with the Junior Professional Program of The School of Contemporary Dancers and also at the Collegiate, Jill helped many young dancers prepare for entrance to the Senior Professional Program of The School of Contemporary Dancers and to eventually enter professional dance careers.
