Donate to our Student Hardship Fund to help talented young dancers fulfil their dreams

Many of our talented young dancers are struggling to pay for their day-to-day costs of being a dance student ​in London. From daily travel, ballet shoes and tights to the expenses incurred when attending auditions and transitioning into a professional life. Even before the pandemic, 65% of our students needed additional funding to train and fulfil their potential.

 Thanks to the generosity of our donors and the School, many already receive vital help through our bursaries and scholarships programme. However, due to the impact of the pandemic, students are facing more financial obstacles than ever before.

You can help them today. A donation to the Student HardshipFund can pay for the essentials that no young dancer should go without
