The PDSW building is closed until further notice in accordance with Government guidelines.  

We know that this lockdown may cause troubling uncertainty, pain from being separated from loved ones as well as boredom.

So we are campaigning for MORE JOY to help everyone to #KeepDancing!

We want to help lift spirits and offer some dance fun in the coming weeks. We have lots of ways to #KeepDancing online.

KEEP UP TO DATE with all that’s going on with PDSW on our website and social channels.  Follow us on our social channels and like, share, comment to SPREAD THE WORD!  

We know that dancing together will be more important than ever when we come out of this Lockdown.

Dancing makes you feel good, it puts a smile on your face and keeps you active. Like many other businesses and charities that have lost money since the Pandemic hit, we’ve had to take some difficult decisions to continue to be viable. If you would like to make a financial contribution so that we can offer more opportunities to dance to more people who need it, please: 

Pay what you can when you watch or come to any of our online activity

Choose the GIFT of dance from our Just Giving fundraiser – just £10 gives a child the opportunity to experience theatre for the first time! 


You can DONATE FOR FREE when you shop online with Give As You Live at

If you have a query regarding a postponed event or ticket purchase please email which is monitored daily. 

We look forward to welcoming you back soon and in the meantime please take care of yourself and #KeepDancing!
