Chisenhale Dance Space is a member-led organisation supporting experimentation in dance and performance, and an affordable home for the dance community. We offer classes for children and adults, artist development and support programmes for professional dance artists, and a boundary-pushing performance programme in our venue and beyond.

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

“Chisenhale showcases edgy work”
