Phyllis Spira Trust

The Phyllis Spira Trust helps to support talented Dance for All students on their path to becoming professional dancers. Students who show exceptional potential are selected to apply to the trust for assistance. At the discretion of the Trustees, these students are sponsored while furthering their training at an approved, more reputable Dance Institution.

The aim of the Trust is to continue the incredible legacy that Prima Ballerina Assoluta Phyllis Spira left us. She was passionate about the further development and training of classical ballet dancers in South Africa and the Trust is one way to facilitate this.

Funds donated in memory of Phyllis Spira form the core of the Trust. By making a donation, you can help to ensure that her legacy lives on through dancers of the future.
