Scholarship Scheme

With support from colleges we offer the CYD? scholarship scheme. This allows dancers to gain full or half scholarships to various colleges across the UK. Colleges scout the next generation of performers during the CYD? season between March & June for the September intake. Grab a CYD? scholarship and secure your future training.


In 2016, CYD? had the opportunity to offer Scholarships worth over £500,000 in funding, in 2017 we hope to increase this even further allowing more dancers access to professional training.

“Last year I attended the CYD? Kent event and found Evolution, I was offered an audition which I attended and I fell in love with the place. After my audition, Miss Jacqui awarded me the Can You Dance? Kent scholarship, I was so surprised and excited to know I could continue to train in the performing arts! ”
