The World is My...?


Shaper/Caper is an independently led organisation based in Dundee developing the work of multi-award-winning choreographer, BBC Radio 2 Artist in Residence, and Clore fellow, Thomas Small.  We were set up in 2015 and we are all about communities!

We won the Inspirational Work in Education and Community Outreach Award from One Dance UK in November 2020. In 2022 we were finalists for the Charity/Group Initiative Award from Proud Scotland and the Digital Citizen Award from the Scottish Charity Awards.

We have worked with over 45k children and young people over the last 6 years! We have a strong partnership with NHS Tayside delivering the Well Good project in 116 primary schools each year in Dundee, Perth & Kinross and Angus, for the past 6 years, reaching 7000 children each year on this project alone.  We also deliver the Dance for Parkinson’s project for the Dundee and Fife hubs, continuing the project that was developed by Dance Base and Scottish Ballet.
