Inaugurated in 2016, the Antoinette Sibley Scholarship will be presented to the overall winner of each level. The prize will be £750.00 per level. This has been made possible by funds provided by the Dame Antoinette Sibley Scholarship fund, established in 2012 to mark the retirement of the Academy’s third president.

A Choreographic Award of £250 will be given to one winner across both levels. This has been made possible by funding generously provided by the Lynn Wallis Bursary Fund, established in honour of the Academy’s former Artistic Director.


Teachers, family and friends are welcome to attend the performance in the afternoon. Tickets are available to purchase here for £6 per ticket, including VAT.
