THE SUE PASSMORE AWARD AND BROADENING ACCESS TO DANCE AWARD
Our mission is to educate the public in the art of dancing in all its forms and strive to advance excellence in dance teaching and education. We are committed to providing opportunities to dance for all and, to this end, we are pleased to launch the Sue Passmore Award and the Broadening Access to Dance Award.
These exciting awards invite Society members to apply for funding to support projects that broaden access opportunities in their local community and further support our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion initiative.
The Sue Passmore Award, which honours the significant contribution of our former Chair and Trustee of over 20 years, will be awarded to two newly qualified dance teachers within five years of achieving their first Society teaching qualification, while the Broadening Access to Dance Award will be awarded to two teachers who have held their Society teaching qualification for more than five years.
Both awards are designed to fund creative and innovative approaches to broadening access to dance and applicants are encouraged to identify CPD or a mentor contribution to support the successful delivery of their project.
