Building The Dance Space

It’s begun!  On Wednesday 18th April, construction on The Dance Space commenced with our acting Chair of South East Dance Trustees, Judith Hibberd, joining Brighton and Hove Councillor Warren Morgan and Deputy Director of U+I construction, Richard Upton, in breaking ground on the site’s footprint.  Circus Street has been transformed over the last six months with the neighbouring student accommodation and residential home blocks reaching full height (or ‘topping out’ in building fraternity speak) and a true sense of how the overall development is becoming ever more apparent.

The Dance Space will sit at the fore of the site, adjacent to a public square that will be used for events, performances and break out classes.  It will meet the highest environmental standards with Biomass heating, rainwater harvesting and a green roof just some of the many ecological features of the building. As a vital new addition to the cultural infrastructure of Brighton, we expect to welcome around 50,000 visitors through the doors in the first year. 

Jamie Watton, CEO of South East Dance, said “This is a landmark moment for us. It signals the next chapter in our vision to make The Dance Space a unique space for artists, as well as a resource for local people from all walks of life to cultivate a passion for dance. We are so grateful to all those who have supported South East Dance to see this project through”.
