Our specialist dance studios provide a safe footing for world-class ballet rehearsals, elite training and open dance classes for all. Our studios are where the magic happens.
Each of our studios has a special hard-wearing floor with a soft, slip-resistant surface to minimise injury and offer protection to our dancers. Throughout the pandemic, we have worked hard to protect every dancer using our studios, but the enhanced cleaning measures that have helped us do this have left our specialist floors in need of replacing, much earlier than planned.
We now urgently need your help to raise over £120,000 to replace the floors. A donation of £100 could fund 1m2 of flooring to help our dancers continue to train and rehearse.
Thank you to everyone who has supported our Studio Floor Fund to date. Thanks to your generous donations, we have been able to replace the flooring in the first few studios!
Watch the resurfacing process of our studio theatre in action.
With a number of our studios still in need of new flooring, there's still time to donate and help provide a safe place for the Company to train and rehearse!
