Student support

Our programmes produce exceptional creative artists who go on to shape the future of dance.  It’s a demanding time in students’ lives, and the majority of students need support – with fees and living expenses, additional learning support or help with injuries.

“My mother was a dancer, and I danced and taught for long enough to know the great joy it can bring to you and others.  As a means of expression it is incomparable – our bodies can say things that can sometimes never be put into words. 

By supporting a scholarship I hope this will make life a little easier for a student to be able to concentrate more on the dance and worry less about paying for it.”

Scholarship donor

Your gift would make a difference by alleviating the financial burden for a promising student.
