Each year, we provide support for members to access teaching qualifications where finance may be a barrier to ensure that dance teachers can invest in their own development and progress with their teaching journey.
To date, the scheme has financially supported the training of over 100 teachers from countries across the globe, including the USA, Italy, South Africa, the UAE and the UK.
The scheme is available under two categories:
- Initial Teacher Training Bursary, for Diploma in Dance Education and Dancesport Associate – up to £5,000
- Higher Teacher Training Bursary, for Diploma in Dance Pedagogy – up to £2,000

"The bursary meant that I was able to travel to the UK from Soth Africa to attend training and learn from the very best. Without that help, I do not believe I would have gained the confidence and knowledge to comfortably take a licentiate examination"
