Participation

Grants & Bursaries

The Centre for Advanced Training is generously funded by the Department for Education, Music & Dance Scheme. We have grants to give away, with many of our students accessing our yearly programme for FREE. In order to accept your place at the Centre for Advanced Training, parents/guardians are requested to fill out the Music and Dance Scheme’s means testing form. This will assess whether your child/dependent is eligible for a full or partial grant. The process is straightforward and calculates the income and benefits received per household in order to determine the government’s contribution toward each student’s dance training.

For more information see the Department for Educations information on the Music and Dance Scheme.
