Bursary places are available for this class. DanceEast have been awarded funding from Ipswich Borough Council to launch the DanceEast Bursary Fund. The fund is intended for young people from low-income households, who love to dance or would like to try dance for the first time, and who would otherwise not be able to afford a term’s worth of dance activity. You can find more information about the DanceEast Bursary Fund here or by calling our friendly Box Office team on 01473 295230.
