Hello! My name is Ben King and I am a contemporary dancer. I have been given the opportunity to train at Trinity Laban Conservatoire for Music and Dance, an internationally established conservatoire that trains contemporary dancers to the highest level.

The last 3 years of my life have been focused on becoming a professional dancer. Having NO contemporary dance experience I auditioned for Northern School of Contemporary Dance, I was unsuccessful. So for a year I worked in a bar and spent my free time developing my abilities when I successfully auditioned for a place at The Scottish School of Contemporary Dance. I have been training here for 2 years and with only £3500 of support from Student Finance England over the full two years, I have worked to support myself and pay my tuition fees. I have worked incredibly hard to develop myself as a dancer and want to continue this in London.

I want to study at Trinity Laban because it holds a WORLD CLASS reputation for training professional dancers. The school is multicultural with students from all over the world travelling to be part of it. The BA (hons) Contemporary Dance course has some of the leading lecturers in the country. I will be able to learn a lot from these teachers and their wealth of experience will help me to become a strong and versatile dancer.

I give you my word that your investment in me will be worthwhile. I hope you will make a pledge, however large or small. Absolutely anything you can contribute will help me to fund my studies. Please also consider sharing my cause on facebook or twitter and encouraging your friends or anyone who might be interested, to check out my campaign.

Thank you so much for your time!
