No dancer should be turned away because they can’t afford to dance
So many young girls and boys dream of becoming famous dancers. The charity “Friends of West London Dance” helps make their dreams possible by raising money for scholarships to the West London School of Dance.
The charity was founded to give financial support to talented students least able to meet the costs involved with the full development of their dance potential. The money raised also helps the school create productions, giving students the chance to perform on stage.
The school believes that no talented child should ever be turned away simply because they couldn’t afford the fees, which is where the charity comes in helping with travel costs, dancewear and class costs.
Founded in 1986 by Anna du Boisson, The West London School of Dance has seen many students go on to train professionally in ballet schools, such as The Royal Ballet School.
