Please reconsider the new changes to DaDA funding.

There is no state provision for specialist Classical Ballet or Musical Theatre training in Wales, England or Ireland. Currently training for Ballet and Performing Arts is only accessible to those on very low incomes or very high incomes making training impossible to most families in the UK. If accessing training was available via student loans and maintenance loans tuition would be more accessable to all potential students.
