SECOND LOCKDOWN: Despite the building being closed we are determined to keep you dancing! 

We will have two online classes that can be attended via Zoom and we’ll be supporting our AUB students and our youth company, COAST, as well as continuing with our Parkinson’s Dance classes online.   

Our anticipated income has been critically reduced because of Covid. We know you’ll want to support us in the coming days and weeks – so while in lockdown we’d love you to take a moment to reflect on all we have achieved together over the last months and years.

Half a million people have danced with us in the last 10 years, fifty thousand children have had educational activities and this year alone we have supported 200 freelance creatives with commissions and contracts.

Your support helps us invest in the dance industry.  Here’s a few FREE ways to help us continue our work and keep you connected to dance while lockdown continues: 

Hop onto our social media pages –  shout about all the good times that you’ve had with us and tell us how dancing with PDSW has helped you through these challenging times – comment and share on any of our social media posts and let’s spread the word together to #KeepDancing.

Check out ways to donate: As you do your online shopping sign up for Give as You Live and we’ll receive a donation at no extra cost to you. 

And if you would like to make a financial donation, it is easy to do that through our donations page.

Thank you!

Keep Safe.  Keep Well.  Keep Dancing
