Cambridge University Dance Society seeks to support the expansion of the vibrant dance scene in Cambridge by offering funding and grants for dance practice and events.
There are two types of funding: grants of up to £120 for individuals and £300 for societies to cover costs of competition entry, dance equipment/costumes, travel to competitions and similar expenses for events that are not designed to make a profit, but which we judge to be of significant value to the Cambridge dance scene.
The second type is funding for shows which charge an entry fee. We will fund part of, or all of your show (dependent on our budget and your requirements) and then we will either receive in return all of the profits or part of the profits (which reflects the percentage that we have contributed to the budget).
The application deadlines for 2017-2018 are November 6th, December 20th, February 20th and April 20th.

In 2016 the Cambridge University Dance Society funded ALICE, a stunning show that fused dance, circus skills, music and drama in a new interpretation of Lewis Carroll’s famous novels. After a sell-out run at the ADC and five star reviews from the Tab and Cambridge Theatre Review, ALICE travelled to the Edinburgh Fringe, selling more than 1,800 tickets over 13 performances.
