Make a difference

Every young person needs to find their me.

Your support today could help a young person discover their unique identity and creativity.

We put young people at the heart of our work in ways no other company does.

Empowering every young person to discover their creative potential and explore their own unique voice through dance, drama and physical theatre.

Each year we work directly with over 30,000 children and young people. For a great many of them, we are their happy place. Somewhere they come to make friends, to have fun, to discover and learn more about themselves and each other, to grow and build confidence. Somewhere to find their me.

“Sprungsters brings young people together, developing their imagination and exploring their potential. Watching their transformation as they discover who they are through the creative opportunities we provide is just amazing.”
Mark and Sarah Worth
“The first thing I noticed about Sprungsters was how warm, welcoming and committed the entire organisation was to making every single member feel recognised and valued. There was a noticeable ethos of caring: being a member of their youth theatre really felt like being welcomed into a big family. Alongside this, I loved how the company strived to make ambitious work which tackled relevant and compelling ideas, using young people’s opinions. There was a real sense of collaboration; like everyone was learning from one another. ”

We live in hugely challenging times. With schools and social spaces closed, we need to make sure the harsh realities of social isolation don’t adversely impact the physical and mental health of our children and young people. For disadvantaged children or low-income children, these realities often hit harder.

We can help. With your help.

Asking for your support right now is a really tough ask. We know that. But our young people need access to our activities and programmes now more than ever.

Changing Lives

Sprungsters is like having a door opened to you where you are exposed to limitless opportunities. It helps your personal development both on and off stage, the impact is unquantifiable!

Sprungsters pushed me to new heights, and ensured that even if I tried to, I couldn’t doubt just how far I’ve come.

I will use the teamwork skills and physical performance skills for the rest of my life

Sprungsters transforms the lives of young people. Watch some of their stories below to find out how.
