“I think CAT has made me more mature as a person and now I’m more confident in what I do, what I say and how I dance.”

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 artform can improve self-esteem and confidence, it can raise aspirations, and promote physical and psychological wellbeing. 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.
