Inside The Dance Space

The Dance Space will be the South East’s new home for dance in the heart of Brighton & Hove. Driven by the vision of our late Artistic Director/CEO Jamie Watton, The Dance Space has been over a decade in the making. We will be naming one of the spaces within the building after Jamie to honour his passion for helping to make The Dance Space a reality. 


When we open, we will offer a wide range of classes, community-led projects and performances from our three state-of-the-art studios and performance space. 

It will be a space for professional dance artists and companies to explore, develop and create new work and, with onsite accommodation, we will be able to provide residencies for artists throughout the year. 

As well as a place to dance, The Dance Space will also be somewhere to meet and work, with an entire floor of rentable workspace for creative industry professionals, as well as two meeting rooms on the first floor.

Wherever possible, we have designed The Dance Space with accessibility at the forefront of our mind and we are committed to ensuring The Dance Space will be a safe and inclusive space where everyone can celebrate the joy of dance.
