Coronavirus latest: CDS closed until at least Tuesday 14th April

Update: Wednesday 18th March 2020

In light of the rapid developments of the COVID-19 pandemic, Chisenhale Dance Space will be closed from today until at least Tuesday 14th April 2020, to support the requirement for social distancing and for the health of our staff, Members, users and community.

On Monday 16th March, CDS cancelled all public programmes until the same date and today we announce the closure of Space operations. We will monitor the developing situation and will aim announce our plans for future activity beyond that date by Monday 6th April.

We’re entering uncertain times without precedent, and the financial impact on Chisenhale Dance Space as a small charity is going to be drastic.

Space hire bookers and classes participants are entitled to a refund for cancelled activities during this time, however, we urge anyone who can afford it to donate the cost, to support CDS and the fees to the independent artists who deliver these programmes. All customers are being contacted. Please allow us a few days for processing.

We are accepting both online bookings and expressions of interest for future bookings via email on If you’re planning a project, pencilling dates is a great way to support us during this time.

We will be working with our artist Membership about digital activities, programmes and support during these uncertain and uncharted times.

Further updates will be posted here and on our Twitter, Facebook and Instagram channels.

Our neighbours, Chisenhale Gallery and Chisenhale Studios are also closed.

When we all get through this, we’re going to need to dance together more than ever, and we’ll be here for you.
