Tel: 020 7121 1000

The Place is a creative powerhouse for dance development leading the way in performance, training, and creation of dance for all ages. Home to London Contemporary Dance School and Richard Alston Dance Company.

Located in central London with very convenient transport links, we are within short walking distance from Euston and Kings Cross stations and to St. Pancras International.

We have a total of 11 bright and beautiful dance studios available for hire, all equipped with sound system, computer and plasma screen, and 9 have a piano. They all have sprung wooden or harlequin floor, and we only allow indoor dance shoes in four of the studios (unfortunately we are unable to accommodate Tap or outdoor shoes at all).

Our studios vary in size and capacity; the smaller one is 15m x 5m and accommodates 15 people dancing whereas our largest one is 16m x 11m and accommodates 35 people dancing.

Costs vary according to dimensions and the day in the week (prices quoted per hour, 20% VAT not included).

Studio details
Smaller studios: £23/£25 on weekends, £25/£27 on weekdays
Medium-size studios: £28 on weekends, £30 on weekdays
Larger studios: £30 on weekends, £32 on weekdays

Please note that the studios are mainly available in the evenings, weekends and when it’s out of term-time but it is always worth enquiring about one off weekday bookings.

In addition to our studio spaces we have two Meeting Rooms available for hire. We hire out the spaces for open auditions, photography, TV and film shoots, where a different rate applies.
