It was established in 1992 by a group of independent dance practitioners at the Carlton Hall in Princes Street, formerly occupied by the Carlton Community Centre. Carlton Hall, built in 1887, has a long association with dance as a venue for social dances, dance classes and dance performance.
Dancehouse contains three spaces – the 104-seat Sylvia Staehli Theatre, an Upstairs Studio and a gallery – used for performances and workshops. It holds curated performance seasons and residencies for dance artists, as well as masterclasses and other events.
