The Studio was purpose built as a studio space in 2008 designed with dance rehearsal space and auditions in mind. It is therefore equipped with sprung floor, mirrors, sound and lighting equipment. It’s quiet light space makes it an ideal rehearsal room for any type of performance in the hubbub of Central London.

The Studio is supported by additional rehearsal space options including the Gallery and Chaplin Room which are ideal non-dance rehearsal rooms. The Chaplin Room or Circle Foyer can also be hired as a holding area to facilitate auditions in the Studio. The Boardroom – our premium meeting space – is also available at a preferential rate to our rehearsal clients. It is ideal for read-throughs and production meetings for up to 28 people. Tea, Coffee and catering can be provided upon request. For extended rehearsal periods a company office can also be provided at an additional cost, this is located next to the Gallery space.
If you need Technical expertise or advice our Technical team are available. They can assist in sourcing, ordering and operating lighting & sound requirements for your rehearsal or showcase. Even if you have your own team it is worth talking to us about any equipment you will be bringing so that we can ensure you have the power and anything else you need.
