• The critically acclaimed Ballet Central company to tour accessible productions to diverse audiences across the country, including the commissioning of new repertoire and musical scores, and creation of costumes and sets.
• Bursaries and scholarships to help widen access to vocational training and Higher Education.
• Schools, Youth and Community projects to help widen participation in the Arts and encourage a love of dance for all.
