Outdoor Dance Appeal

Help us create exciting performances for Birmingham’s streets and outdoor spaces, enabling people of all walks of life to experience great dance free of charge.

Free outdoor performances are a vital part of our festival programme. They reach out to new audiences with memorable dance experiences that surprise, delight, and inspire pride in our city. They are a great way to engage young audiences in dance, often for the first time.

These performances are free to the public, so rely heavily on subsidy and donations.

It costs us £15,000 to commission a unique new outdoor piece – bringing our streets to life with dance and reaching out to new audiences. As a registered charity we rely on the generous support of our funders and people like you to continue our work – so every pound you give today will help, and a regular donation would make a real difference. 

By investing in our Outdoor Dance Appeal appeal today, you can help us continue to deliver a rich programme of free outdoor work, inspiring audiences over many years to come.

If you support us, you’ll be named on our website. Supporters donating £350+ will be invited to see a rehearsal of a new commissioned work.
