Dance and Academic Scholarships Awarded


We are delighted to announce two prestigious dance and academic scholarships at Brookes Moscow, for both Max and Joshua Bonici. Both boys came to visit the school again, just before heading off for competition with their Russian dance partners to China. On return, they will attend Brookes Moscow, and we hope to see them in action in our very own performance hall in September and when school commences.
