One of the world’s leading dance institutions is being supported by BHSF, the Midlands-based health insurer and employee benefits provider.
Laban, based in Greenwich, London, is the UK’s only conservatoire of music and contemporary dance and is a leader in education in this field.
BHSF has donated funds to the Trinity Laban Dancer Benevolent Fund which helps dancers who sustain injuries to receive the treatment they need to carry on dancing.
All students at Trinity Laban are encouraged to take out BHSF’s Cash4Health plan, which allows them to claim money back towards costs of treatment.
Katherine Watkins, of Trinity Laban, said: “We have struggled to be able to provide treatment for this small group of dancers.
“This situation changed with the donation by BHSF to the Dancer Benevolent Fund at Trinity Laban. Due to the generous funds received from BHSF we have been able to help all those dancers who could otherwise not have afforded such necessary treatment.
“The fund has made an incredible difference to the students and the therapists, who can now provide treatment without being acutely aware that the student might not actually be able to afford it.”
Brian Hall, sales and marketing director at BHSF, said: “It is great that BHSF can support such a prestigious institution as Trinity Laban in a way that makes such a major difference.”
