Yorkshire Dance Membership

We are currently updating our Collective Membership scheme. The updates and changes will be announced Jan 12 2015. Check back then!

Yorkshire Dance invites you to join a thriving new network of dance practitioners, The Collective. For a small annual fee, Professionals, Students and Recent Graduates will receive a huge range of invaluable benefits.

Professionals: £40 per year (buy here)
Students / Recent Graduates: £25 per year (buy here)

Professionals include: anyone who earns – or aims to earn – all or part of their income through working in dance. This may include dancers, choreographers, dance practitioners, facilitators or dance teachers.

Student & Recent Graduates include: anyone studying full time at FE/HE level as well as graduates who sign up within two years of completing training. Evidence will be required (eg.  student card or graduation certificate).


Simple! You can buy online, call 0113 243 8765 or call in to Yorkshire Dance and speak to Lauren Clarke, Assistant Studio Operations Manager.

If you are requesting a Student / Recent Graduate Membership please bring along some proof of identification such as a graduation certificate or student card. Please note spot checks may take place at any time throughout the year.
