Get Dancing


In line with 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.

We are delighted to announce that we are now able to start a phased reopening of the Jerwood DanceHouse. Core office staff have been happily working in the DanceHouse for the past month, ensuring that the building is fully COVID secure, with a range of safety protocols in place. Artists are starting a socially distanced return to our studios and we will shortly be welcoming our Centre for Advanced Training and University students back to the building to start their training.

For now our class programme will still be delivered online, and we have an exciting range of live classes going on sale from Monday 31 August – have a look here at what is on offer. We will be sharing more news soon on our plans to restart performances within the building, with some really special things in the pipeline. In the meantime, watch this space for some new activity for children and young people… Click here to take a look at our online programme!
