Our family-friendly offer

We commission, produce and programme exciting and innovative dance shows, workshops and classes for children, young people and families. 

Our cafe offers a range of healthy tasty food and snacks and there are high chairs available. There are lifts, accessible toilets and baby changing facilities. 

We are close to many bus routes and to the stations at Euston, Kings Cross and Russell Square. 

We don't charge booking fees, so the ticket price you see is the price you pay. 

We offer bursaries to young people to help them fulfil their dancing potential by helping with the costs of the Saturday Dance classes.
