The Place has 11 state-of-the-art dance studios, a studio theatre and a cafe (open 6 days a week) and is situated in the heart of central London, between Kings Cross / St Pancras and Euston stations.
The Place has been a focal point of dance creativity in Britain, contributing to the development of cutting edge contemporary work, particularly new choreography, since it was founded in 1969.
