Dance Hub Birmingham’s ambition is to actively position Birmingham and the wider region as a globally significant area for dance. Located on the creative campus that is home to Birmingham Hippodrome, DanceXchange and Birmingham Royal Ballet, and the new home for One Dance UK, a major new purpose-built studio officially opened on 12 November 2019.

A boosted investment programme prioritising the development of artists, audiences, the broader dance sector and essential infrastructure, together with a growing and active network of partners from across the region’s dance sector, are key elements in the step change in the development of the art form.

Dance Hub Birmingham is already enabling exciting future ambitions across the region and beyond by growing the capacity for artists of all backgrounds to develop, create, learn, and sustain their practice in Birmingham.

Dr. Polly Hudson, Birmingham City University, on behalf of Dance Hub Birmingham partners, said:
“Dance Hub Birmingham exists to raise the profile of dance as a vital art form for the city and region, highlighting Birmingham as a vibrant international city for dance, and supporting the sector to ensure its sustainability. At this exciting time for dance in Birmingham we are delighted to be able to welcome people into the beautiful new studio facility, and to share Dance Hub Birmingham’s ambitions for how dance can make a significant and continuing impact in our city and beyond.”
