Become a Best Friend, Friend or Patron

As a registered charity, DanceEast relies on the generosity of our core funders and supporters, including our loyal audience and volunteers.

The most effective way to support the work of DanceEast is through a regular annual donation as a Best Friend, Friend or Patron.

As a Friend you’ll receive regular updates, and more importantly you play a vital role by providing reliable and regular support – enabling us to plan our artistic programme to bring you the very best the dance sector has to offer.

Funds directly support opportunities for everyone to take part, experience and enjoy dance. They allow us to continue to promote the creative, social, health and wellbeing benefits of dance, as well as support personal, professional, and educational progression.

If you would like any more information or to discuss joining us as a Best Friend, Friend or Patron please contact Bryony Hope, on or 01473 235573.

Please GIFT AID if you’re able, it allows us to claim an extra 25% so your donation goes even further! 


The sum for our Friends Scheme breaks down as follows:

BEST FRIEND £100/£25  | FRIEND £45/£5  |  PATRON £500/£50

The first figure is your freely given donation upon which we can claim gift aid, and the second figure is our charge for the benefits on which we pay VAT.
