Why Support Dance Base

Autumn 18

Whilst Dance Base is Scotland’s national centre for dance and a thriving hub of talent and creativity – many may not realise we are also a registered charity.

We rely on a diverse range of funding from individuals, trusts and foundations, statutory funds and companies.

This ensures we can continue to welcome, amaze and inspire more people to participate in and experience the highest quality dance. 

Each year, we must raise £146,000 to cover our funding gap.

You can help.

With your support, Dance Base can build on our extensive work, which includes:

  • Delivering participation programmes to 4,000 people across Edinburgh’s diverse communities
  • Providing 215 professional dance classes
  • Providing 83 residency opportunities for professional dancers
  • Showcasing the work of 42 professional dancers
  • Presenting a dance fringe programme - which previously featured 24 dance companies from 13 different countries
  • Attracting 14,400 people to Dance Base to enjoy 15,265 community courses, drop-in classes and workshops
