DanceEast, like so many other arts and cultural organisations, is a registered charity and, as such, much of our work is subsidised through fundraising. We believe in Great Dance for Everyone – dance has recreational, social, educational and therapeutic powers. Dance as an expressive art-form can improve self-esteem and confidence, it can raise aspirations, and promote physical and psychological wellbeing.
Use these pages to explore the many different ways that you can get involved with our work as an organisation, from donating £10 to one of our one-off fundraising campaigns, through becoming a member or even making a bigger commitment through your business as a corporate sponsor. There is a way for everyone to get involved in our work.
We are incredibly thankful to all our supporters and would not be able to produce and provide the high quality dance provision, workshops and shows that we do without their help. Support us today and together we will make the East of England a place where everyone can engage with great dance.
Each year we select an area of work that we are passionate about and ask for your help as we embark on a six-month fundraising campaign to support the delivery of high quality dance provision. This year our GET DANCING campaign will raise funds to support our vital work with children and young people – with a focus on increasing access and breaking down barriers to participation so that every child and young person can experience the benefits of dance.
GET DANCING will enable us to reach children and young people that might not otherwise have the opportunity to engage in dance – helping to inspire and grow positive and confident young people with a passion for dance. Who knows, your support might just help to create the next generation of professional dancers.
We are asking people to donate £10 to help us achieve our £5,000 fundraising target which will provide 900 hours of high quality dance provision.
We have asked some of the young people who engage with us to tell their stories. Click on the link above to see these stories and keep an eye out as more stories will be added throughout the campaign.
If you have engaged with our work, or just love dancing, we would like you to share your story with us using #getdancing
