Bonus for dancers
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.
