In 2011, for the first time in the history of the Fund, we supported dance.

There were two grants available - one for community dance groups and the other for aspiring dance individuals. Through these schemes we funded some fantastic projects across the UK from bollywood, hip hop and street dance, to ballet and contemporary styles.

You can find out more about some of our dance winners here, plus get practical advice and insight about working in the dance industry over on the blog.


The grant schemes for Dance are currently closed.
