The Margaret Allenby-Jaffé Ballet Scholarships


are held annually, in memory of the founder of Northern Dance Centre

Auditions for 2020 have been postponed to 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic

There are three Scholarships available, each of which will entitle the winner to one year’s (three terms) free ballet classes at Northern Dance Centre. Scholarships are decided by audition, which take place at our studios in Skipton. 

In memory of Mrs Jaffé, special note is made of those candidates who show awareness of musicality, awareness of each other and of the “audience”, innate stage presence and graceful presentation.

Scholarship Winners are presented with the Scholarship Shield and a trophy to keep. Plus of course the Scholarship Award of a year’s free ballet classes, to start the following September, a medal and a certificate. 

Additional awards presented on the day include one for Musicality and another for Promise and Potential. 

Each child receives a medal and certificate of participation
