The Worshipful Company of Chartered Surveyors is generously supporting four talented students to complete their final year of training at Central School of Ballet. The bursaries are designed to help students from lower-income families fund the high cost of training and living in London. With the global pandemic exacerbating the challenges faced by students in need – many have seen reductions to family income at a time when costs have risen – the bursaries are needed now more than ever. With our support, the four 2020/21 grantees were able to continue their training from their homes during the Winter 2021 lockdown, and are now returning to London, following the UK Government’s recent announcement, to resume Central’s dual programme of onsite and online training.
Ballet Central 2021 includes a restaging of Act 2 of Highland Fling (the image shows its first performance by Ballet Central in 2017).
