The scholarships will be awarded on the final day of the Easter course to students who have demonstrated passion, commitment, drive and self belief combined with a good technique and the desire to pursue a career in dance despite the many obstacles one might face.  These values and attributes are those Bryony took with her in her very own and unusual journey to stardom as a prima ballerina with The Royal Ballet.  


Bryony was not like everyone else.  She had to carve her very own direction to the top.  In doing so she pathed the way for a new direction in classical ballet like an intrepid explorer that has no fear!  The Dance World has much to thank Bryony for as she extended the boundaries of the ballet world by leaps and bounds and her amazing extensions.

Faculty 2011

Dance Forward could not have taken such a bold step to set-up and run, in the space of less than six months, one of the world's best Easter Schools, without the belief, encouragement and financial support of a number of individuals. Moreover, without the commitment of the faculty who made the Easter School world-class I would not be able to write this message.

Dance Forward is extremely grateful to the following who have in the past given generously.
