A Jazz-tastic Experience for any enthusiastic Dancer!
"I had the most amazing experience on the BOP Summer Intensive Program. Dollie's dedication, knowledge and creative spirit is unsurpassed and I left the intensive more inspired and with more confidence, awareness and love for dance. Can't recommend dancing with BOP highly enough and can only hope that I'll be able to participate again" - Natalia Wise (Australia)

The BOP Jazz SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
In July 2019, I was able to enjoy a scholarship offer from Dollie, to attend the BOP Jazz Summer Intensive 2019. It was one of the best experiences of my life.! I had previously attended some fantastic classes with Dollie in Barcelona, but in London it was different. The city, my colleagues, and the caring of Dollie and Paul were wonderful. The BOP Jazz program was very lively, energetic and assisted me in finding my confidence, ability and understanding of expression and musical rhythm and performance.. You learn a lot and although you end up exhausted at the end of the day, you feel as you never want to stop dancing. I will always be grateful for having had the chance to share those dancing days with Dollie and Paul and all the dancers who took part. - Sarah Bonfil (Spain)
BOP Jazz Theatre - Equality, Social and Cultural responsibility and outreach.
Part of the BOP Philosophy and ethos is aimed at supporting and offering special training opportunities to the next generation of young dancers.
Over 25 years, Dollie and Paul, both as jazz educators and artistic directors of BOP, have made it a considered requirement to offer young dancers of all ethnicities, the opportunity to develop and aspire through the BOP Jazz Mentoring and Scholarship Programs and this year is no different.
The omnipresent movement of Black Lives Matters and that of “Diversity & Equality” is not a new concept to BOP. It is the philosophy and the moral fibre through which everything we do and stand for is integral part of the educational and creative practices of the company.
It is our professional duty and personal responsibility to provide a platform that’s give the opportunity to our young dancers, to truly experience, engage and be enlightened through creative and professional training. Past Scholarship participants have hailed from all over the globe, including the UK, Ireland, Italy, Austria, France, Spain, Nigeria and South Africa.
This year, for the BOP Jazz Summer Intensive 2021, we are delighted to offer Training Scholarships to our younger generation of dancers/students of colour. Age identified - 16-18 years old.
