"It's made a big difference to our lives...she's a very happy, focused child and it's down to this funding"
- Parent of fund recipient
The Iris Tomlinson Fund provides small bursaries to young people to enable them to fulfil their dancing potential by helping with the cost of the activities offered by the Children and Youth Dance programme at The Place. These activities include our Saturday class programme, youth companies and additional workshops and holiday projects.
The Fund is dedicated to Iris Tomlinson in recognition of the work she did in shaping our young dancer’s programme over the last three decades. Iris left The Place in autumn 2011 and this Fund honours her commitment to the development of young dancers.
