Funding and Support


We firmly believe that performing arts training should not be out of reach for any child that has the courage and determination to pursue it.

Unfortunately this is not the case for many children. Performing Arts training is very expensive. This is sometimes reflected in a lack of diversity on stage and screen with many students priced out of full time training when they reach Drama School or University age.

At The Boury Academy we are trying our best to provide an affordable place for our students to learn their craft. We want to arm them with the resources to continue with this training as they grow and give them a strong foundation and grounding to enable them to follow their dreams. We are also trying to reach children who have not taken part in Performing Arts classes before and who may not previously have the resources to attend such a school.

However, this  all does come at a cost.

Our fee's for students are very low and we want to keep it that way.

This is where you come in.

We are actively searching for funding to help our students with their fee's, to help them experience the West End and to be able to cover the costs of keeping The Academy running.

If you could sponsor a place for a child or would like to support The Boury Academy in any way please do get in touch.

We can't wait to hear from you
