This month it's all about...

Looking for that unique, special and very stylish gift?

Why not purchase one of our Limited Edition coffee mugs, especially designed by Tamara Rojo – a perfect gift for the ballet enthusiast in your life or as a little treat for yourself. 

Our new mug features a simple, stylised self-portrait designed by Tamara and includes her signature. Tamara generously donated her design to Dance UK to help us raise funds for our vital work that enable dancers to progress their careers, stay healthy and keep dancing.

Treat yourself, your friends and your loved ones to a special gift and at the same time, enjoy the pleasure of supporting a good cause in aid of dance.

To receive your mug for Christmas orders must be received by 10th December and will be shipped via First Class delivery (within the UK).

PERFORMANCE OPTIMISATION PACKAGE (POP) MEMBERSHIP

Dance UK has just launched an exciting new membership package. It includes everything normally included in Dance UK membership plus two additional elements specifically designed to help dancers maintain health, fitness and optimum performance.

Dance science at Trinity Laban Conservaotire of Music and Dance

The package has been designed to complement the existing specialist healthcare available at National Institute of Dance Medicine and Science (NIDMS) NHS clinics and will be invaluable for dance artists working independently or without comprehensive in-house health provision. Any individual dancer, teacher or choreographer can take out the package; companies and schools may also wish to add it to their existing offering for dancers.
