Bursaries and Funding
We know that for some people the cost of training can be a huge barrier to getting them the skills to progress in their careers. Our bursaries are designed to provide financial assistance to dance teachers who most need it.
Teachers Bursary Scheme
In 2018, we introduced teacher training bursaries as part of our charitable status and to further support our mission to maintain and improve teaching standards. The scheme directly benefits those wishing to become, or progress as a Society trained teacher in any genre. Over £70,000 a year is allocated to provide support where finance may be a barrier, for teaching qualifications or to take part in courses, to ensure that dance teachers have the opportunity to invest in their own development and progress with their teaching journey. To date, the scheme has financially supported the training of over 70 teachers from countries across the globe, including the USA, Italy, South Africa, the UAE, the UK, and many more.
