We had hoped to commence renovations and a full review of the Technical Spec of the theatre itself over the winter period, with a view to reopening for productions in the late spring or summer. Unfortunately, with Manchester now in Tier 3, this work is now on hold and will need to be rescheduled.

For the time being, a decision has been taken to close the Dancehouse doors beyond our core educational activities, until at least Autumn / Winter 2021.

We are awaiting confirmation from our Promoter Partners as to whether our existing shows will be moved to an alternative venue, postponed or cancelled but a refund will now be available from your original ticket vendor upon request.
