Green received the ABS scholarship under the Intra/Interstate and International Training Program (ITP), a unique training program which provides training opportunities to Victorian, interstate, and international students at Levels 1-3.

The ABS ITP Program allows students outside Melbourne to join the school, since most of their programs, such as the After School and Full-Time training takes place in their Melbourne facility.

Green was one of the many students who have been offered scholarships after attending the Youth America Grand Prix Brisbane masterclass. 

The two-day semifinals, held between August and September 2022 in Sydney and Brisbane, saw participants attending masterclasses led by ballet luminaries, such as ABS director Lisa Pavane and Cuban-Canadian ballet star Cesar Corrales.

Besides the scholarship at Australia’s premier training facility for ballet, Green has also received an acceptance at John Cranko Summer School.

Rett Davies from Perth Classical and Contemporary Coaching has also been offered a full year’s scholarship to the premier ballet school.
