‘Fridays Free to Dance’ is an initiative we set up to support those running non-profit activities who are struggling as a result of funding cuts. We offer two free studio slots (11-1pm and 1-3pm) on every second and fourth Friday of the month. They are allocated on a first come, first served basis to the first person to post on our Facebook wall with ‘Fridays Free to Dance’ and the chosen time slot on the Wednesday before. All we ask is that you:

  • Use the studio productively for a non-profit activity

  • Finish 10 minutes before the end of your session leaving the space clean and tidy

  • Only use one free slot per person/group per month

  • We reserve the right to amend or cancel sessions at our discretion should we need to.

We have used Dance Studio Leeds for a few of our Billy open auditions and would definitely recommend it – the studio is a great size with all tea, coffee facilities, as well as good stereo. The best thing about the studio is Katie who runs it- who could not be more helpful.

- Clem on behalf of Billy Elliot, The Musical

The Dance studio has been such a great asset to our company with affordable and attractive studios for the company to hire for rehearsals, auditions and private tuition. The Dance Studio is always reliable, friendly and helpful.

- Ella Mesma, Element Dance Company

I highly recommend Dance Studio Leeds for studio hire. Katie and her team at DSL are always very helpful, well organised and very professional. We have used the studios on a number of occasions, for staff training days, rehearsals and Pointe Work Masterclasses and we are always made to feel very welcome.
