The Costume Source Dance Community Grant

Dance is important

We all know how important dance and the performing arts are.

  • They foster a sense of belonging and unity.
  • They provide a platform for individuals to express their identity, promoting inclusivity and diversity.
  • They encourage teamwork, enhancing social bonds and fostering a supportive environment.
  • They promote health and well-being in those who participate.

Dance schools are an important part of the community, but often their aspirations exceed their budgets!

Giving back

Running a dance school is hard work, and we know that there isn't always much left over for extras.

The Costume Source Dance Community Grant is designed to help dance schools with things like improving studio facilities, providing bursaries to students, or even towards a performance opportunity for the school.

We love to give back to the wider dance community, so this really is a big one for us!

Open to all dance schools in the UK, we award multiple grants throughout the year, with each grant worth between £100 - £1500.


Every single hire from Costume Source helps fund these grants, so the more you hire from us, the more we are able to award!

How to apply

If you are a dance school based in the UK and have been trading for at least 12 months, you can apply for The Costume Source Dance Community Grant.

We welcome applications from schools of all legal statuses, whether for profit or not.

Applications are always open with grants awarded throughout the year based on merit.
