Students at Elmhurst, English National, Tring, Central, Ballet Cymru, and Yorkshire Ballet Summer Schools are among those who have benefited from our sponsorship.
Last year (2018), two scholarships to attend the Yorkshire Ballet Summer School were awarded to students from English National Ballet School and Central School of Ballet who would not otherwise have had the opportunity for this kind of intensive training alongside a mix of students from home and abroad.
The 2018 Stanley Hawkins Scholarship to the Ballet Cymru Summer School was awarded to a student from Elmhurst Ballet School.
The London Ballet Circle Dame Ninette Award went jointly to the leading male and female graduates of The Royal Ballet School.
The 2018 Sir Peter Wright Prize was awarded to a student from Elmhurst Ballet School.
In addition, we made donations to 4 dance organisations which were also designed to support the development of young dancers.
As we are a small charity, we are unfortunately unable to accept individual applications for grants. However, we are are actively discussing how we can broaden our reach and assist students who may not already be studying full-time, but who meet the entry criteria, to attend one of the growing range of Summer Schools.
