Support Us

The Place is a registered charity and needs the support of individuals and organisations to help us to create a world with more dance. This allows us to enable talented dance artists to unlock their potential, support the creation of new work and give the widest possible access to opportunities for everyone to enjoy dance, regardless of age, background or experience.

We would like to say a big thank you to all of our existing donors for their generous and steadfast support in these exceptional times. If you can, please consider donating today towards The Place Pioneering Fund to support the communities we serve, independent artists and children and young people who have been disproportionately affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic. A donation of any size will make a huge difference.
