Get Dancing


In line with new government advice to stop the spread of the coronavirus, we have made the very difficult decision to close the Jerwood DanceHouse in order to protect the health and wellbeing of our audiences, participants and staff.

All public activity including classes, workshops, performances and events will be cancelled until further notice. Clearly, this is not a decision that we wanted to make, particularly at such short notice and we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused. In the meantime, please take care and thank you for your support.

We will be in touch with further details shortly, stay tuned…




The Jerwood DanceHouse might be temporarily closed, but we haven’t stopped dancing, and you don’t have to either! Although it won’t be our usual programme, we’ll be releasing digital classes for you take part in at home from Monday 30 March 2020, through our YouTube channel.
