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…




We’re going live! Some of our most popular classes will now be available as live classes via Zoom. These will be free, but you must book your space via the website. Just like our regular classes in the Jerwood Dancehouse, there are a limited number of spaces for the live sessions, so make sure to book as soon as possible.

If your class isn’t going live, don’t worry! We’ll be adding new content to our YouTube every Monday morning for those classes that aren’t moving to zoom.
