Dance charities merge
Following the successful merger of the Royal Ballet Benevolent Fund and the Dance Teachers Benevolent Fund, the charity has adopted the working name of the Dance Professionals Fund.
The new name has been chosen to signpost the all-encompassing support the Fund provides to a variety of people from the dance profession.
What does the Dance Professionals Fund do?
The Dance Professionals Fund works with present and former dance professionals in need, including dancers, choreographers and choreologists, as well as dance teachers.
Be it illness, injury, financial or personal difficulties, the Dance Professionals Fund (DPF) is there to offer aid.
As the two Funds always have done in the past, the new combined charity will offer compassion and advice alongside practical assistance.
Dame Monica Mason, Chairman, said: "This is a significant move forward for us as we celebrate 80 years as a charity. We hope that this will encourage even more people to access our services".
Executive Director's comments
Clemmie Cowl, Executive Director, says: "Clarity about our mission and aims is very important to us. We have developed our remit as a result of the merger and believe our new name reflects this change".
