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.
Here's your opportunity to put on a performance, conference, create a film night or to run your classes in a beautifully restored, landmark city-centre complex complete with its original Art Deco features. We'll even help with your marketing activity.
This seats a maximum of 430 (sales capacity 407), or 490 if a combination of standing and seating. It can also be converted to a 380-capacity standing-only space for live music events. The stage area also includes a recently installed large screen that's perfect for film nights.
Within the same complex is a coffee shop and licensed theatre bar, both available for your event.
We have one of the largest stages to perform on in the city, with sloped tiered seating giving everyone a perfect view. It's the perfect blend of intimacy and vibrancy to add an extra dimension to your live music event.
We can deliver the kind of audience experience you want to create. If it's standing-only there's room for 380, or up to 490 with combined standing and seating.
Let your audience experience the latest digital projection technology in the original 1930 surroundings of our auditorium. You won't find a more inspiring character setting for your special private movie experience or cinema-based corporate event. If you wish to present a public screening event we can work with you to acquire the appropriate council licence.
Used during the day by the highly respected Northern Ballet School, you couldn't run your classes in more inspiring surroundings.
