How can you help?

A Charitable Not for Profit Organization since 1987

The school’s mandate is unique:

Every child who has a wish to (learn) dance should be given a chance to do so

Every child who has a wish to perform dance should be given the chance to do so

Every child who has a wish to create dance should be given the chance to do so.

It is through the power of this mandate that Miracles have happened, dreams have

come true, young people have felt empowered. Our mandate has never failed to inspire.

Living this mandate, the school is able to inspire donors to support all our needs:


The Bursary Fund

The School’s Bursary fund is unique amongst ballet schools. It makes it possible for any

young person regardless of socio-economic background to have the opportunity to

dance, to create and to perform. Pia Bouman School for Ballet and Creative Movement

provides excellence of training and inspires each student to reach beyond the art.
