About Us

About Us

Dance Base is Scotland’s National Centre for Dance. As a creative charity we want to see people across Scotland engaging in dance as an art form, a way to exercise and a way of life. We support Scottish dance artists to develop successful careers and we develop opportunities for dance to be used to support people’s health and wellbeing. We are international in outlook, ensuring that dance in Scotland is globally connected.   
We’re proud to support work across Scotland from our purpose-built studios in the heart of Edinburgh’s Old Town. Our centre caters for dancers of all ages and abilities, providing an accessible programme of activities that offers a diverse public a sociable and enjoyable way to keep physically fit and develop new creative skills. Our four world-class studios provide dancers with excellent facilities and an inspiring environment in which to dance.
