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.

Please fill out this application if your region wishes to participate in the program.  A schedule will be prepared so that participating regions will have the opportunity to share the library on a rotational basis.  Regions will be required to appoint a representative to manage the library while in their possession and ensure that all items have been returned in good condition before the library is transferred to the next participating region.  Regions will be held accountable for the replacement cost of items which are not returned or have been damaged as a result of neglect while in their possession.
