Announcing the Dance Space…on the cusp of South East Dance’s 20th anniversary

Fanfares and bunting! It’s with enormous excitement that we are finally able to announce that construction has begun at Brighton’s Circus Street where South East Dance’s new home, The Dance Space, will open its doors in early 2020. It signals a major milestone for the organisation after years of planning and fundraising and a particularly symbolic coming of age as we celebrate South East Dance’s 20th anniversary. Back then, we sought to provide contemporary choreographers across the region with badly needed support outside the capital.  Since then, we’ve grown our mission and reach dramatically; commissioning new work, nurturing the careers of artists and engaging many hundreds and thousands of people from all walks of with the life-affirming and transformational benefits of dance.

Designed by award winning architects Shedkm, the building will include a suite of studios and a large ‘Creation Space’ that can transform into a 150 seater auditorium. It will feature live/work units providing accommodation for visiting artists where they can test ideas and fully immerse themselves in the creative development of their projects. A dedicated community and learning space in addition to a public events square will host a programme of events for under 5’s to the over 60’s ensuring that there are workshops and classes that everybody in the local area can access.
