MDI Merseyside Dance Initiative
Inspiring people through dance

Support Us

MDI is a registered charity, funded by Arts Council England as one of its National Portfolio Organisations and by Liverpool City Council. To carry out our work we also rely on grants from a range of trusts and foundations, earned income from studio classes and hire, and private donations.


We passionately believe in the power of dance to transform people’s lives. If you would like to support MDI in its work there are a number of ways you can help.

Find us on facebook and follow us on Twitter – you’ll become part of the dance community and be among the first to hear about new classes, dance opportunities, discounts for shows and lots of other exciting stuff!

Drop in to one of our classes. Getting fit has never been so much fun, and they’re a great way to make new friends. You’ll also be helping support our community and educational work.

Use us – whether it’s hiring our studio, booking a dance party for you and your friends or finding freelance dancers for your workshop, wedding or event. Email for information, or fill in an enquiry form.

Volunteer – See our Opportunities page for information on how to get involved.

Donate – Individual giving helps fund our work with vulnerable people and those who don’t traditionally have access to dance. You can give a one-off gift or donate regularly by direct debit. 
To donate by cheque, please make your cheque payable to MDI, and send to MDI, 24 Hope Street, Liverpool, L1 9BX. Download a Giving Form, allowing us to claim Gift Aid on your donation at no cost to you.
