 Ballet Cymru have recently fundraised to create a brand new purpose-built dance studio in Newport, and to celebrate, we would like to offer this beautiful space to freelance dancers based in Wales – for free!

For 4 weeks (Monday 14th June – Friday 16th July 2021), Ballet Cymru will be offering this space for FREE to freelance dancers/makers/artists who need space to think, train, choreograph, experiment with new ideas and anything else in between.

Initially, Ballet Cymru can offer up to 4 sessions in the studio per freelancer. Bookings are available from 9.30am – 1pm or 2 – 5.30pm, Monday to Friday (more sessions may be available, depending on uptake). The space can be for individual use, or you can bring up to 4 other people.

We would love to meet you, learn about your work and support you in whichever way we can to help both established and new dance artists based in Wales to develop and create.

Likewise you’re most welcome to watch the Company dancers rehearse Ballet Cymru’s production for 2021,Giselle!

The fully accessible Dance Studio 2 measures 17m X 10m so can accommodate social distancing for small groups. It is fully air conditioned with a sound system, Harlequin sprung dance floor, mirrors and barres (if required). There are retractable blinds for privacy if you would prefer to keep your work, practice, andyourself private. Ballet Cymru has strict Covid-19 Safety Protocols in place and the studios are risk assessed prior to use.

Ballet Cymru is located in the Rogerstone area of Newport, just off Junction 27/28 of the M4. We have free car parking facilities on site, and there are links to public transport services nearby.
