Millennium recognise that the cost of training is a serious financial commitment, although we would prefer to think of it as an investment. We offer our courses as vocational training with the potential added benefit of the Trinity College London qualification, being an Ofqual (the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) recognised Diploma at level 6.

We offer flexible payment plans and options for deferred payments, although all fees must be paid within the academic year to which they relate.

The Dancer’s Development Fund charity may be able to award bursaries, which would be offered as a reduction towards the cost of a course. Furthermore, Millennium has three named bursaries, as listed below. The criteria for all these are based on audition result and the auditionee’s bursary application and reference letter of support from a previous teacher and/or applicants own letter of professional intent. The decision to offer a bursary will be taken by the management team and one member of the audition panel.

Application for these funds is available to students who have been offered a place on one of the courses. We strongly recommend prospective students ensure that they have a funding strategy for their complete training in place. Please be aware that there are many charitable organisations, who may be able to help with college fees; the best place to investigate this option may be by visiting your local reference library. Please further note that we are unable to offer full grants for the training.


Wendy Toye was Millennium’s first patron and instrumental in ensuring its early success. Wendy was a dancer, actor, choreographer, director and producer of the very highest calibre and was universally respected as a true doyen of British and International theatre.


Jacki Mitchell was a founding member of Millennium and the UKs most applauded Jazz Dance teacher in her day. She trained many generations of dancers in the technical jazz dance curriculum that was based on the work of the legend Matt Mattox.


This bursary will be awarded to the student who receives the highest grades across all subjects at their audition.
