The Val Whyte Bursary was instituted in 1991 and, since then, has been awarded each year to a promising young dancer. Finalists are selected from an open audition with entrants being in academic Grade 8 and no older than 13. The adjudication panels have always been composed of men and women representing the finest teachers and professional dancers in Southern Africa and the credibility of these adjudicators has always been impeccable. The Bursary winner receives a cash award for five years to assist with ballet tuition. All finalists receive a year’s tuition at the Joburg Ballet Academy from the day they are chosen. Finalists are privileged to receive teaching of the highest quality.
