I am so very grateful to have had the Victoria Academy of Ballet Scholarship society take some of the financial burden of dance training from me and my family. They were extremely helpful and supportive. What really sets the VABSS apart is the level of care they have for all the students. The VABSS volunteers work to help students focus on dance training without having to worry about finances and I cannot thank them enough.
