Yama is an independent organisation with charitable aims, and since 2019 we have been self-funded and managed by the members. Our company runs on hard work of the management committee and members, who meet regularly, organise fundraising campaigns and plan projects to ensure we are financially sustainable. We want to keep making exciting, high quality dance work: we are very proud to be a vital part of providing a creative and social network for over 50s in Bath and want this to continue as long as possible.
We were very pleased to receive a grant from the National Lottery Community Fund in 2019, which has allowed us to develop our organisation and plan for the future. We have also received over £2000 from our recent Crowdfunding campaign to run our first ever showcase event – thanks to all who donated!
We are primarily a self-funded organisation, relying on membership fees to cover all costs for hiring tutors and rehearsal space, and producing regular performances.
Please consider making a donation to support us and keep Bath’s creative community of over 50s moving and thriving!
