The Davis-Williams Scholarship is named after the late Baba Chuck Davis, founder of the African American Dance Ensemble, The Chuck Davis Company and DanceAfrica and Mr. Jimmie Williams, former dancer of AADE.

The scholarship will be awarded to youth who are interested in the performing arts and

desire to learn their craft and pursue the art of dance and or teaching. We believe the

education of our youth is important, and the way to ensure the continuance of dance is

to physically, mentally and financially do our part to assist those who desire to

carry the banner.
