Develop a unique partnership with one of Leeds’ most loved cultural organisations.
Yorkshire Dance helps around one and half thousand people a year to access regular dance sessions in Leeds. We reach into communities who would not otherwise have these opportunities. Demonstrate support for your city by supporting our work.
Sponsor an Event
In 2019 over 12,000 people came to our festivals and events. Sponsorship packages are available for our Youth Dance Festival, FRESH and our Encounters festivals. The next upcoming event is FRESH 2022.
FRESH is our annual youth dance festival with an audience of around 1000 people including young dancers and their families. FRESH 2022 takes place online and in person on 1 and 2 April 2022.
Benefits of sponsorship include:
- Your logo on all publicity associated with the event (including posters, leaflets and e-flyers)
- A full page advert in the programme
- Your branding on our website
- A credit in the event film
- Reach our audience with sampling opportunities
Adopt a Dance Class
We run over 1,000 weekly dance classes a year for the community of Leeds. If your business would like to ‘Adopt a Dance Class’ by making a one off donation or getting involved in team fundraising activities please get in touch. We can come in to your work place to talk about the session and provide resources to support your team’s fundraising efforts. All classes up for adoption are free and aimed at people who could not afford to pay to attend:
- Seacroft Youth Company for 11-18 year olds.
- Dance On sessions supporting over 55s around Leeds and Bradford to get active.
- In Mature Company sessions working with care home residents in Leeds who are living with dementia.
Team building movement sessions
Sessions are expertly facilitated by our in-house choreographer and can be tailored to meet your business objectives. We have led sessions to increase workforce creativity, improve internal communications and facilitate B2B networking.
