Bursaries

Grants for New Dancer Class & Bursaries - There are bursaries available to clubs that are having financial difficulty with hall costs and caller fees for their new dancer classes may apply to the Federation for funding to help with these costs. Callers or cuers or clogging instructors who are doing their own classes may also apply for funding to help defray their costs. Applications may be made every 2 years but preference will be given to clubs that have not previously received the grant.
