Our annual Theatre Bursary Awards celebrate the exceptional talent of the young dancers nominated to represent each of our seven theatre faculties. Since it's launch in 2015, the Awards have provided financial bursaries to over 50 students and teachers. Winners have used their bursary to attend national and international summer schools, fund private tuition, one to one coaching and intensive courses. We are proud that two previous winners of the awards went on to be category finalists in the BBC Young Dancer competition.
