The University of Edinburgh Dance Performance
The 36th Annual University of Edinburgh Dance Performance, from our home to yours, in aid of the Mental Health Foundation.
Join us for a week long celebration of dance with the incredibly talented dancers of The University of Edinburgh. Unable to perform in the Pleasance Theatre this year, due to CV19 restrictions, the groups have created virtual performances. In lieu of tickets the groups are asking viewers to make a donation to the Mental Health Foundation.
Watch the Dances
Dances will be released from Monday 10 to Friday 14 May through University of Edinburgh Sport social media channels.

Mental Health Awareness week is an annual event when there is an opportunity for the whole of the UK to focus on achieving good mental health. The Mental Health Foundation started the event 21 years ago. Each year the Foundation continues to set the theme, organise and host the Week. The event has grown to become one of the biggest awareness weeks across the UK and globally.
Mental Health Awareness Week is open to everyone. It is all about starting conversations about mental health and the things in our daily lives that can affect it.
The Mental Health Foundation is the UK’s charity for everyone’s mental health. With prevention at the heart of what they do, the Mental Health Foundation aim to find and address the sources of mental health problems so that people and communities can thrive.
