Chisenhale Dance Space is a home for risk and experimentation in dance and performance. Situated in the heart of Tower Hamlets for over 30 years, Chisenhale Dance Space is responsive to the needs of its local and artistic communities whilst striving for artistic and organisational resilience.

Chisenhale Dance Space has an active and diverse artistic community, contributing to and influencing the programme, supporting the space and advocating for our core values.

As an organisation we work across three strands:
Artistic development
Community and education
Affordable home for dance making

In our role as educators of children we are committed to best practices in safeguarding their well-being.
