Every child who has a wish to (learn) dance should be given a chance to do so
Every child who has a wish to perform dance should be given the chance to do so
Every child who has a wish to create dance should be given the chance to do so.
The School’s Bursary Fund is unique amongst ballet schools. It makes it possible for any young person regardless of socio-economic background to have the opportunity to dance, to create and to perform.
