While we are still in lockdown we want to lift your spirits by campaigning for MORE JOY to help EVERYONE to #KeepDancing!

Although our building is closed – 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 the lockdown restrictions.

For some inspiration and motivation hear from the people that have been dancing with us for over a decade & visit our CAMPAIGN FOR JOY video page.

If you like what you see, come and join us & with your support, 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 www.giveasyoulive.com

If you have a query regarding a postponed event or ticket purchase please email info@pdsw.org.uk which is monitored daily. 

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