About Shaper/Caper

Hello! Welcome to our Village Hall...

We are Shaper/Caper, a dance charity based in Dundee, Scotland.  Our mission is to get everyone dancing and talking about all things dance! #TeamDance

We wanted to explore new ways of engaging people in dance classes for people of all ages in the digital age.  We started to think about developing a way to bring people together in a sort of digital community hub and......HEY PRESTO 💥......Village Hall was born (this way) baby! Come in, take part in some classes, watch a film, listen to a talk.  It's like dance classes with benefits. 

We offer a programme aimed at children called 'Village Fete'.  Check it out for a mix of creative dance classes, movie nights, and creative thinking classes - aimed at developing young minds for the future.  After all that excitement, there's even a mindfulness class to restore that energy! 

We've also got a programme for the grown ups and older people too, which we think is rather ingeniously titled 'Village People'. That's got you dancing, right?! Offering seated dance classes, watch-a-long's with our Artistic Director, Q&A's and CaperTalks - exploring the creative process with our team of pro dancers.  And, yup, mindfulness is there too.  🧘

And if you want EVERYTHING then check out 'It Takes a Village' for access to everything mentioned above.  A programme that truly is for the whole family.  

We hope this Village Hall will allow us to connect with people from all over the world. 🌍  We will provide exclusive access to creative dance classes for children, interactive dance and play sessions for families to do together, dance classes for older people, as well as mini-performances by our wonderful dance performers. We will also provide exclusive interviews with Thomas and our dancers talking about the creative processes they employ when working in the studio to create his award-winning work.

A bit about Shaper/Caper... 

We work with over 10k people a year in person through schools and in communities across Scotland with our dance theatre workshops and classes for people of all ages and abilities.  We run Dance for Parkinson's classes for people living with Parkinson's and their carers.  We also tour critically acclaimed performance work by our multi-award-winning choreographer, Thomas Small.  Thomas was the first-ever Artist in Residence at BBC Radio 2.  Our work has been presented all over the world including performances of our show 'Within This Dust' at the 9/11 Memorial & Museum in New York City.  


Pricing... 

We wanted to make it affordable and different from the norm where a family might pay around £5 per child, per class - it quickly stacks up. So, how does creative dance classes, films, creative thinking classes and mindfulness for £15 for a whole month for a whole family? Not bad, eh? 😀 There are different options starting from £2 a month through to £18 a month if you want absolutely everything. 

If cost is a barrier, then we have a limited number of free passes to give away.  Just email us at [email protected] with 'Free pass' in the subject line to enquire about this.  We aren't funded to offer these spaces but we really don't want anyone to miss out!
