04 Dec Royal Academy of Dance Summer School Scholarship
Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted to become a ballet teacher and I am hoping for a place at the Royal Academy to complete a BA Hons in Ballet Education degree. Going to the Royal Academy has always been my dream because it is so prestigious and I have been looking at ways to maximise my UCAS application.
The VI Form Academy has a fantastic and unique Scholarship Programme. It is designed to encourage students like me to independently find opportunities that will support progression after A levels and then they help fund the project. I was delighted that the reward for my written application and a formal interview was a significant contribution towards the costs of a Summer School placement at the Royal Academy in 2019.
I spent the first week of August in London at the Royal Academy of Dance. This experience was honestly one of the best of my life! I learned so many skills during the week-long intensive training and instruction in ballet, contemporary dance, ballet repertoire, and West End Shows. I made many friends and contacts within the industry which I suspect will help me in my future career.
I know that The VI Form Academy Scholarship helped me to have the experience of a lifetime and has supported me to get one leap further towards my dream career!
