Dance City’s ‘Pro Lates’ is a new offer for local, professional dance artists, giving free access to our studios between 9pm and midnight, every Thursday during October and November 2020*.

This pilot project is designed to give artists greater access to quality studio space to create, train, research and develop their work and ideas. Extending our opening hours offers those with work, childcare or other day time commitments to undertake creative development at a more convenient time, making the process of creation accessible to more artists.

Initially offered at our Newcastle venue only, all studios will be available to use (1,2,3,4,5 and the Theatre) as well as our Boardroom, Small Meeting Room and The Corner for those wanting to hold a meeting or focus on the administrative side of their project.

Bookings are now available for the remainder of October and November and can be made through Rachel Birch Space will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Bookers are strongly encouraged to maximise their use of the full three-hour slot. Pro Lates is not available to students or under 18’s. Delivering sessions whereby fees are charged to attendees are not permitted.

Dance City’s primary focus is to support North East Professional Dance Artists and this new programme is designed to do just that. However, if there are other creative practitioners in the region wishing to develop ideas and work within a studio environment, we invite you to get in touch as we are offering our studios to you for a nominal fee of £20, for the hours of 9pm – 12am and availability dependant.
