teacher training scholarship 2023:
Anna Morgan Dance, in partnership with the TIRED Movement, and with partial funding from the ISTD's 'Broadening Access to Dance' award, are proud to present the 2023 Teacher Training Scholarship.
We are teaming up to offer an exciting opportunity for a passionate, talented and inspiring British or UK-based dancer from the global majority to receive a FULL SCHOLARSHIP towards their ISTD teacher training.
Representation, particularly of Black artists, within the worlds of teaching and examining is poor. We want to see greater representation in leadership positions in particular, and in order for young teachers to reach those positions they first need to feel included and nurtured in their early careers.
This scholarship will fund a teacher's tuition to becoming fully qualified with their ISTD 'Diploma in Dance Education' in either Ballet or Modern (recipient's choice). The DDE allows teachers to teach the ISTD syllabus and enter students into exams all over the world. The course has in-person or online options allowing it to be accessible irrespective of geographical location.
Ordinarily, the costs to complete this course are £4000, plus exam fees. However, with this scholarship, all costs will be covered: £2000 will be provided by the ISTD's 'Broadening Access to Dance' award, £2000 will be provided by Anna Morgan Dance, and the exam fees will be provided by the TIRED Movement.
