The decision to retrain into a new career or back into the world of dance can be a challenging one. Retraining fees and equipment are provided by another charity specialising in this area. We can provide auxiliary support for additional costs, such as maintenance.
The DPF understands that the decision to retrain can be a challenging one for dancers. The fund can't help with retraining fees or equipment, but might be able to give some extra support depending on circumstances.
If you are a dancer thinking of retraining, you're advised to contact the Dancers' Career Development DCD transition centre. The DCD offers a range of retraining support and advice, including retraining grants to cover the cost of course fees and other expenses.
A DPF Bursary may be provided to help with additional costs, such as travel, depending on your circumstances.
