Val Whyte Bursary Awards

Venue: Roodepoort Main Theatre

Val Whyte’s passion and commitment to a vision became an incredible, all-encompassing vessel of opportunity to foster classical ballet talent in Gauteng.

Val passed away in 2010, but her legacy of ongoing generous sponsorship, ensures this prestigious Bursary lives on, already beyond a quarter of a century, impacting significantly on the greater ballet community, locally and abroad.

The 2018 Bursary Performance at the Roodepoort Theatre, will take place on 25 and 26 May.

The Val Whyte Bursary brings you an evening of dance pieces performed by the Joburg Ballet, the Joburg Ballet Academy as well as the Val Whyte Bursary Finalists. A ballet especially choreographed for young dancers will also be performed. The Val Whyte Bursary is aimed at encouraging young dancers. Finalists are selected from an open audition with entrants being in academic Grade 8 and no older than 13.

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.
