Support Us

As a registered charity, our work is only made possible by our visionary community of friends and partners across the public and private sectors. Every donation is vital, and central to our success.

Like us, our supporters are creative, curious and ambitious. They share our vision for radical transformation through creativity and innovation, and seek to push the boundaries of physical intelligence in real and digital worlds.

Dance is for everyone, and the role of art, creativity and innovation has never been more important – but its existence has never been more precarious. Help us to secure not just its future, but a future without limits. Thank you.
