Summer School Bursaries
The Mark Bruce Company Summer School provides an invaluable extension to the vocational training of emerging dancers as they embark on a professional career.
We offer up to 20 talented participants aged 16+ an intensive weeks residency in the Company's home base in Frome. Here they have the opportunity to further their technical ability and explore Mark's choreography through repertoire sessions with himself and other company members. Students apply through an audition process and places are deliberately limited to ensure that those selected gain from detailed, individual attention.
We believe passionately that opportunities for young talented dancers to access the training they need should not be dictated by their financial means. While the fee we charge only covers the direct costs of running the programme, we know it remains out of the reach for many. For this reason we have set up a bursary fund to ensure our programme remains accessible to all. Contributing to this fund will help talented young dancers in their journey towards a professional career.
