Nurturing creativity through movement has been a key aspect of our mission since its founding. Our Saturday morning Children’s Creative Movement & Dance classes offer a dynamic series of classes for children in local boroughs. Led by CDS Member Robyn Holder with Olly Otley, Ingvild Marstein Olsen and Malachi Lewis-Paul, the programme nurtures the creative futures of nearly 200 children each term. The classes start at age 2 and run on a progressive programme up to the age of 12, building skills and knowledge in movement, rhythm and choreography. We always end the year with a performance which lets family and friends see what the children have created.


Try out any class on your first visit for £5 without booking the full term! See details on each class page.

Safeguarding and Inclusivity

As an organisation working with children, Chisenhale Dance Space is committed to taking action to promote the welfare of young people. We have implemented Safeguarding policy and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, gender, religion or ethnicity, can be protected from harm.

CDS is also committed to creating a culture of inclusion as an organisation and among its community. We have developed an Equality and Inclusivity Statement, and Anti-bullying Statement
