It's a rare gem just by Regent's Canal on the south side of Victoria Park. An open home to local artists and residents, it hosts the best of traditional movement and dance classes and as well as the development of avant-garde performance work. It has two beautiful light studios and a jaw-dropping history of dance makers who have worked in the building. The atmosphere is always welcoming, the staff incredibly friendly. The ethos of the artistic community at Chisenhale Dance Space is pretty much summed up as: DIY But Don't Do It Alone.
Chisenhale Dance Space offer artists and choreographers great rehearsal spaces and a home away from home. They give lots of great opportunities and support to independent artists!
Chisenhale Dance Space, with it's seductive red-brick wall and inviting old maple floor, radiating the 'spirit of the underground' and attracting an artistic community prepared to take risks, is the obvious choice for us!
Artist-led institution that builds on its life over 30 years being instrumental in the development of dance and its ecology which spreads out from London, across the UK and the world.
From open dance classes to way-out performances, from support for artists to projects in the local community, from kids' classes to older people's workshops, Chisenhale has something to offer everyone. It's been inspiring me to move, participate, investigate and watch for years, and still keeps fresh.
Lovely community space giving a home to dancers of all ages, and a stage for some unique performers in East London.
CDS has always allowed exciting ideas and artists to grow. It's an artistic community that's not swamped by ticking boxes, instead it continues what it originally set out to do so long ago, taking risks and being a hub for the things other venues are afraid of showing! Everyone should support places like this in an ever growing 'gentrified' London
