Support Youth Dance England

In the past five years alone over 400,000 young people and their teachers/leaders have participated in Youth Dance Englands' national programmes. At YDE we believe that dance changes and enriches young people's lives, and we strive for every child and young person across England to have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of high quality dance experiences. 

We want to continue to support the next generation of dance lovers and professionals through our programmes and our wider work, and you can help us reach even more of them through our Futures Fund. 

Showing your support is quick and easy, and your money has a real impact on young people across the country. 

Every donation makes a difference: £10 could help us award 200 U.Dance certificates, £250 could fund a choreographer to lead a day's workshops, and £1000 could provide three days of workshops for enthusiastic young dancers.

"I have been very lucky but am sure that the great opportunities I have had would not have arisen if I hadn't made the decision to post my application to Young Creatives!"
