Class Card Bursaries

Thanks to generous support from the Creative Land Trust, ID can offer 20 bursaries of 10 free classes this autumn. 

These bursaries are intended for dance artists who are experiencing financial hardship as a result of – or predating – COVID-19 which threatens to impact on well-being, either physically or mentally. Bursaries will be offered to the first twenty applicants drawn through a lottery; this is because ID cannot enter into a detailed process of means-testing and does not want to apply any ‘quality-based’ assessment criteria to this fund given the circumstances. Our intention is to seek further funding so that we can offer further bursaries next year. Supported through the Mayor of London’s Culture at Risk Business Support Fund and the Creative Land Trust.

How to apply: please email info@independentdance.co.uk with a sentence expressing your interest, together with proof of current benefit award (e.g. a screenshot, photo or scan). If you are not in receipt of or entitled to any UK Government benefits but wish to apply for a bursary, please indicate why.

Applications open: Thursday 10 September
Deadline: Tuesday 15 September
