Who we are


Edinburgh Community Performing Arts CIC is a not-for-profit Community Interest Company (SC711827) established in October 2021. We provide dance and performing arts opportunities for the benefit of the community. 

Our Focus

The overarching focus of Edinburgh Community Performing Arts CIC is on equalities, diversity and inclusion. We aim to provide social opportunities through creative movement and dance activities targeted at individuals who may experience barriers to arts engagement.


We don't limit participation in our activities to people within certain locations. However, we actively seek to attract participants from deprived geographical areas within Edinburgh, including (for example): Sighhill, Stenhouse, Broomhouse and Drum Brae. 


Our primary focus is helping those people who have been adversely impacted due to the pandemic. In particular, older people who are experiencing social isolation, people who have neurological diseases or health conditions, adults and young people who have learning and/or physical disabilities, young people from challenging backgrounds, and those in extreme poverty.

Our Aims

To work with older people, people with disabilities, young people and people in extreme poverty who are from deprived geographical areas. To provide free dance and movement activities to vulnerable people. In addition, our aims for participants are to: 

Improve mental and physical wellbeing.

Increase confidence, self esteem and feelings of positivity.

Create social opportunities and reduce the sense of issolation.

Learn new skills in a supportive, and safe environment.


We rely on grants from various Trusts and Foundations and donations from individuals to run our activities and remove the barrier of cost for our participants.

Edinburgh Community Performing Arts has a voluntary Management Committee and all decisions on the spend of grants and donations is made by the voluntary Director and Management Committee.

Sponsor a class

Edinburgh Community Performing Arts are looking for generous individuals who believe in free community arts provision. If you want to support a vulnerable person to access our projects, you can sponsor a creative movement class. 

You can sponsor one class attendance per month for £5, two class attendances per month for £10, or 4 class attendances per month for £20.

These donations will go towards the participation costs for individuals in Edinburgh who need it most.
