Micheala DePrince Inspiration Scholarship for the Danceworks International Ballet Academy Summer School

Standard YouTube Licence

The Danceworks International Ballet Academy Summer School is an intensive summer school for dancers under the age of 18 that runs from 17 to 28 July 2017 ending in a performance in the Lilian Baylis Theatre at Sadler's Wells. According to the Academy's web page
"The day will start with a two hour technique class. A one hour lunch break. Afternoon classes will consist of boys/mens, pointe work or classes focusing on pirouettes, petit and grand allegro. A short 30 minute break . Lastly, a two hour performance class in preparation for the Danceworks performance on the final day for family and friends at the Lilian Baylis Theatre, Sadler's Wells.."
The normal fee for the programme is £750 though there is a 10% discount for students who have signed up for the termly class.

Not everyone's parents can afford that kind of money.  A scholarship has been established to enable one outstanding young dancer to attend the event. It is called the Micheala DePrince Inspiration Scholarship in honour of that fine soloist of the Dutch National Ballet. An audition will take place on 14 May 2017 to select the winner. Applications to take part in the audition should be made by email and addressed to

I should like to wish all candidates every success in their studies and subsequent careers.
