DMC’s mission is to build dance communities. Help us achieve our mission by joining us as a DMC Community Member, or support us by making a tax deductible donation.

Become a Supporter

Dance Makers Collective has a significant impact on the physical and mental health and wellbeing of communities around Australia, particularly children and young people, emerging and mid-career artists, and communities in regional and outer-metropolitan areas across Australia.

To achieve lasting impact is only possible with financial support from individuals who make donations to the company, these donations enable us to subsidise the programs we offer to make them financially accessible to people from communities who cannot afford them. We believe dance is for everyone, and so our offerings are based on the principles of equity, if you cannot afford what we provide that should not prevent you from entering our doors.

Becoming a regular supporter, or making a one-off donation, means we can achieve true equity and fulfil our mission to build dance communities, here in Western Sydney, and in regional areas across our state and across Australia.

Donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible and a receipt will be issued. Donations made to DMC are to support its core objectives, the descriptors above provide examples of how your donation could be used. If you have a specific request for how your donation be used, such as to support a specific program or project, please get in touch with our General Manager via email at gm@dancemakerscollective.com.au
