Support Us

We aim to inspire a passion for dance, ignite creativity and show that dance makes a difference to people's lives and we can only achieve this through the support of our funders and you, our generous backers.

Dancefest is a charity and we rely on a wide range of support and public donations to continue our work.

Throughout the summer term our groups and classes will be working towards Dancefest’s Big Dance Fortnight, which highlights and celebrates the work we do with people of all ages throughout the year.

A big thank you to our current funders and to everyone who has donated this year.

These are some of the highlights of Big Dance Fortnight 2017, made possible by your grants and donations, thank you.

We appreciate any kind of contribution at any time. Here are some of the ways you can help:

  • We accept donations via givingabit, which allows you to donate as you shop with no additional cost to you.
  • New for 2017, we’re a charity on ebay so if you are selling anything please consider donating a percentage to Dancefest.
  • Donations made on a regular basis (for example by standing order) are particularly appreciated, as they allow us to plan properly for the future.
  • When a Gift Aid declaration is completed on any donation, at no additional cost to you, we can receive an extra 25p for every pound that you give.
  • We also love to hear about ways your company might support us. Last year we received funding from TK Maxx and support in kind from Warndon Worcester Tesco, made possible by employee nominations.

A regular or one off donation however small is gratefully received and will support Dancefest’s continuing contribution to the cultural life of Herefordshire and Worcestershire. 

If you work for a business that would like to support the local community you may be able to access support or funding on our behalf.

If you'd like to discuss ways you can support Dancefest with absolutely no pressure to commit, please call 01905 611199 to speak to Melissa, or send an email to
