About the spaces

Looking for cheap, flexible studio space in London? Look no further… it’s what we’ve done best for 40 years!

CDS has two versatile professional studios for hire in East London, with rates dependent on your circumstances and funding. As an artist-led organisation, we’re committed to supporting independent artists to access affordable studio space to make their projects happen.

From a one-off workshop or class, to a longer rehearsal process –  we want to make it as easy as possible for you to book a space and make yourself at home whilst you’re here.

Our building is equipped with gender neutral toilets, a communal kitchen (with free tea and coffee), comfy lounge and free Wi-Fi. We regret that we are accessible by stairs only, as we are situated on the second floor of a warehouse building. Studios are accessible via a door code system. An individual access code will be sent to hirers by email prior to their booking.

We have two unique spaces available to hire from 10am – 9pm Monday- Friday, 9am – 7pm on Saturdays and 10am – 6pm on Sundays. You can book our spaces via our online booking system up to 12 weeks in advance.

For dates later in the year or for larger, more complicated requests, please get in touch for a bespoke booking via spacehire@chisenhaledancespace.co.uk.

 

Please note the building will be closed from Saturday 23 December – Tuesday 2 January.

We had a great time at Chisenhale... we will certainly return for further projects. Being an independent artists collective, we particularly appreciate the affordable rates.
