KLL A-Level Scholarship Appeal

KLL and LRBS provide a pathway to Russian vocational ballet training for children who might not otherwise have exposure to ballet. We would like to make available a number of full scholarships to deserving and talented children to cover A-Level education alongside vocational ballet tuition.

September 2013 - August 2014

  • Need

    Need

    A number of talented children usually identified from outreach are unable to take advantage of the pathway to a career in dance that KLL and LRBS offer. We believe it is key that our students also continue their academic studies to give them the best career platform. We would like to be able to offer a number of A-Level scholarships to cover the tuition in the 3 subjects our students are expected to take.

    Solution

    These A-Level scholarships will allow our senior vocational students to continue with their academic studies alongside their vocational ballet training which should give them the best start in working life whether as a dancer or not.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Enable senior students to continue with A-Level education in parallel with full time ballet training

    Activities

    » Cover the full cost of tuition in 3 A-Level subjects

    Success will be measured by the number of students achieving 3 A-Levels

    Why Us?

    KLL is unique in that it is not just providing a one-off introduction to ballet. Working with LRBS, which provides the outreach performers, KLL delivers a continuous pathway for children either to weekly enjoyment of ballet or serious vocational Russian Ballet training.
