THE DUST PALACE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM

ABOUT THE SCHOLARSHIP

The Dust Palace Scholarship Program provides an opportunity for young people aged 10 to 18 with limited resources to access a full year of free training in circus arts.

Circus is an amazing tool for self-development, awareness, motivation, communication skills, confidence, coordination and strength. Our scholarship students gain all this plus a deep sense of community with their circus peers.

AUDITIONS

Date: Saturday July 6th

Location: The Dust Palace – 61E Hugo Johnston Drive, Penrose

Time: 10am & 11:30 am

Sessions run for 1 hour

No circus experience required – just enthusiasm and your best efforts!

 Sign up to our newsletter to find out more information about the auditions & other cool stuff.

You can also check more information from our social media accounts & official Facebook event for the auditions. 

SCHOLARSHIP SHOWCASE

2017/18 – CONCRETE SELF
The 2017/18 Scholarship Showcase was a brilliant success! Each student shone in their own way, presenting a work that was authentic to them. There were many tears at their final class but for all of them the journey will continue!
