Studio Hire

In light of the current Government guidance and heightened risks in relation to Covid-19, Dance Hub Birmingham CIC regrets that all studio activity in the Dance Hub space remains suspended during the national lock down. All bookings will sadly therefore be cancelled, and we will be contacting everyone who is affected as soon as possible. We look forward to re-opening the space again as soon as we can, so please get in touch if you would like to make a booking.

Hire our studio

The Dance Hub Birmingham studio complex is situated in the heart of the city centre as part of the creative campus housing Birmingham Hippodrome, DanceXchange and Birmingham Royal Ballet; and is also the new home for One Dance UK

The new studio is a major new asset for dance, designed to enhance the rich dance infrastructure of the city and region.  It will grow the capacity for artists of all backgrounds to develop, create, learn, and sustain their practice in Birmingham.   The studio is the perfect space for rehearsals, workshops, auditions and more …

DanceXchange, on behalf of the Dance Hub Birmingham partnership, manages the studio diary and booking process.    Email or call 0121 667 6730
