Inside The Dance Space

Over a decade in the making, The Dance Space is Brighton & Hove’s newest arts & cultural building - a brand new home for dance in the heart of Brighton & Hove’s cultural quarter.

A highlight of the city’s new Circus Street development, The Dance Space is designed by award-winning architects shedkm and features three state-of-the-art studios, including a 123-seat performance space, and a floor of meeting rooms and office space to hire.

When it opens in Spring 2022 The Dance Space will combine high-tech creation and performance spaces, bringing together professional dance artists and people of all ages and abilities to create, enjoy and experience dance; with contemporary, characterful, light-filled workspaces.

Accessibility and environmental sustainability are vital for us as an organisation and for our vision for The Dance Space too. The building has been awarded the highest BREEAM [Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method] rating for its commitment to sustainability; we are using sustainable ways to address carbon-heavy issues such as lighting and ventilation; and wherever possible we are opting to use reclaimed furniture to fit out the spaces. The interior has been designed with the support of disabled artists and inclusion specialists to be as accessible to as many people as possible – including people with physical and neurological disabilities.

Please see below for more information on our individual spaces. We can’t wait to welcome you inside.
