Victoria Academy of Ballet Scholarship Society

The Victoria Academy of Ballet Scholarship Society was incorporated in the summer of 2013 and achieved Charitable Status in July 2014. The goals of the society are to provide deserving dance students with scholarships and bursaries to assist with the cost of their dance education. As well, the Society organizes and encourages activities which promote the value of a dance education for young people.

The Society is committed to assisting dance students achieve their goals who may have limited financial resources and further, to recognize outstanding talent and potential. As well, we arrange events which are structured to shine a light on the joy of dance for people of all ages; either as a spectator or a participant.

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.
