Exeter Dance Festival will be continuing the de Waal bursary, introduced in 2012 in memory of Pamela de Waal. The bursary will be open to any entrant of any age who is resident in the South West. Applicants who wish to be considered for the Bursary of up to £250 are invited to send a letter of application to the Festival Committee at the address given on the contact page, or handed in at Exeter Corn Exchange, no later than Thursday 15th February. There will be no age restriction and all aspects of each application will be considered.

Pamela has influenced so many during her lifetime as a performer, teacher, choreographer, mentor and adjudicator but she will be remembered most of all for her love of dance. We hope we can help to keep this passion alive for future generations, which is all Pam would expect of us.
