Find out how we can support you when training for a new career.

The DPF understands that the decision to retrain can be a challenging one for dancers. We can't help with retraining fees or equipment, but we might be able to give some extra support depending on circumstances.

If you are a dancer thinking of retraining, we would advise you 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. Please contact Nancy Liiv, Dancers' Career Development.

We may be able to help by providing a DPF Bursary to help with additional costs, such as travel, depending on your circumstances.
