Chisenhale Dance Membership does not operate like other Membership programmes: it is neither a fundraising strategy, nor a funded artist development scheme. Instead, it is a community.

Many Members’ chose to use their Membership in different ways, and at different times, but the more you put in, the more you will get out.
