Our City Dances 2022: Celebrating the Launch of The Dance Space

As we officially throw open the doors to The Dance Space, you’re invited to join us for a free festival of dance classes and performances offering a taste of what to expect year-round from September.

Our City Dances 2022 is a celebration of the diversity and joy of dance – taking place for the very first time in and outside The Dance Space, Brighton & Hove’s new home for dance.

This year’s festival is a very special edition including a weekend of free performances and have-a-go workshops, followed by a week of free taster classes, and crowned by a free performance from award-winning dance duo Thick & Tight. 

 

Date and time
Saturday 16 - Friday 22 July 2022
