Bonus for dancers

Central Leader - - News -

The gen­eros­ity of a for­mer dancer lives on thanks to a new schol­ar­ship for young dancers.

The $20,000 schol­ar­ship from the Eileen May Nor­ris Dance Schol­ar­ships Trust is open to dancers aged be­tween 18 and 24. The trust was formed af­ter Miss Nor­ris died in 2003.

It will be awarded to dancers of any genre who have demon­strated out­stand­ing dance tal­ent.

Pub­lic Trust’s na­tional man­ager of spe­cial­ist and char­i­ta­ble busi­ness Lind­say Pope says Miss Nor­ris showed won­der­ful gen­eros­ity in es­tab­lish­ing the schol­ar­ship.

Applications for the grant are now open and close on April 30.
