Be part of our next adventure – donate as an Apsara or Creative Circle supporter today.

I am only able to produce my work with the support of our wonderful major donors, Creative Circle and Apsara supporters. They create the space and resources that help me develop initial thoughts and inspirations into fully shaped performances.

— Shobana Jeyasingh



Become an Apsara

Apsaras are the heavenly dancers of Hindu mythology. For us, they are also the donors who support our work with annual gifts of between £5 and £499.

Please consider donating to our Apsara Fund in these challenging times for live art, so that we can continue to create, innovate and keep dance alive in new and different ways.

Become an Apsara today, and we’ll keep you posted on all our upcoming plans.

How your support helps

Creating new dance works takes months, even years. Shobana’s initial ideas, inspired by life in today’s bustling cities, can only form, develop and finally bind together in a finished work through a rigorous process of research, rehearsal and collaboration with dancers, composers, designers and production experts.

We set ourselves a minimum target of raising at least £250,000 each year to support the development of productions and our wide-reaching Learning programme.

By supporting us, you can play a vital role in the development of our company as well as of contemporary dance in the UK and beyond.

“We are immensely proud and privileged to be able to support the development of new work at Shobana Jeyasingh Dance. Being even a small part of the creative journey that brings an exciting new performance to the wider audience is extremely important to us.”

Sandi and Jake Ulrich, Members of the Creative Circle
