Become A Sundancer Patron

Our Sundancer Patrons support Dance Base with annual donations from £200. 

They are a critical part of the Dance Base family. Their support helps us work to make the benefits of dance accessible to everyone, and allows us to provide a home for the Scottish dance community.

For over 30 years, Dance Base has enriched lives through dance and movement. Our life-changing work includes our Dance for Parkinson’s and Dance for Dementia programmes. We deliver workshops and activities to young people in hospitals and residents in long-term care settings. Our dance companies, PRIME, Community Company and the Lothian Youth Dance Company, champion inclusion for dancers of all ages and backgrounds.  

We want to grow these programmes, reach more people, and share more dance. With your help, we can achieve that. Our Sundancer patrons support us to expand our important activities, improving lives throughout Scotland and the world.
