Join our community of monthly donors creating a positive change through dance. 

The Rubicon Friends scheme is caring group of monthly givers on a mission to help others discover their potential, feel motivated and connected in the world by dancing. By donating regularly, you can make a difference all year round and help those who need it most. Take a look at the ways you can make a difference:

Motivating and connecting communities through dance

Established in 1975, Rubicon is a social arts organisation built around the single, central idea of aspirational dance for everyone. Delivering dance across the Cardiff, Newport and Vale region, we have made it our mission to challenge traditional views of what it means to dance; whether this is where we dance, who we dance with, or what artistic expression looks like. 

Dancing with Rubicon could be the one time during someone’s week where they feel like they can excel, be with friends, and express themselves. Whether this be in a school, care home, or the dance studio, we think everybody has the right to dance and feel this way. Dancing together opens doors to new skills and possibilities, improved wellbeing and a better quality of life.


Creating an Inspired, Creative Wales

Rubicon delivers the UK’s largest community dance programme and we have created a wide range of progression routes to support the development of dance across the whole of Wales.

We give people opportunities to take to the stage across the country. Through our flagship and over 50s performance groups, people of all ages are given opportunites to shine in regular performance. Our GCSE, BTEC and ARTS Award pathways in dance also give young people an opportunity to develop their passion into successful dance careers. 

Rubicon also works hard to support the dance workforce in Wales through our Wales Wide Training Programme. Offering consistent training all over Wales, the WWTP meets sector demand and is a friendly space for practitioners to create new links. Our apprenticeship scheme also helps those who are just entering the sector to become highly skilled dance practitioners; building confidence and experience in their area of interest.
