Phyllis Haylor Scholarship

The Phyllis Haylor Scholarship scheme began in 1982 and is awarded annually to an individual who achieved Highly Commended in their Dancesport Associate during the eligible timeframe. A scholarship of £2,000 is awarded to support further dance training, for example, higher qualifications, such as Licentiate, an Associate qualification in another genre, or towards any relevant CPD to enhance the recipient's career as a new dance teacher.


  • The scholarship is available to those who have passed a Dancesport Associate with Highly Commended during the eligible time frame. 
  • Applicants must not hold any other qualification higher than Associate level in any genre. 
  • Applicants may enter multiple times across numerous years, providing they meet the requirements stated above. 
  • Applicants must hold a Society membership that is paid for and up to date. 
  • Applicants must be available for the presentation date.


  • Applications open and candidates complete an online form stating their intent to enter.
  • Candidates are shortlisted and invited by email to deliver an 8-10 minute verbal presentation on one of three specified topics specified for a specialist panel. The presentation is followed by a short Q&A with the specialist panel.
  • A winner is chosen by the specialist panel and provided with information on how to claim their scholarship funds.
