Community Usage

dance studios

FOLLOWING AN EXTENSIVE REFURBISHMENT, THE ST MATTHEW’S CENTRE ON STURTON STREET NOW OFFERS A FANTASTIC SITE FOR EDUCATION IN DANCE AND THE PERFORMING ARTS.

  • 14 separate studios.
  • 7 of them fitted with specialist Harlequin flooring specifically designed for dance.
  • A central performance area of over 1800 sq ft able to house seating for around 100 people and a stage.
  • A built in sound system with multiple speakers in every single studio to ensure excellent music provision.

community use

As the long-term tenant, we have already invited a number of local community dance groups in to use our new studio space, and their feedback has been excellent. We are hoping to develop our links with the local community by opening to a wider audience of local dance groups, and would therefore be delighted to hear from anyone who runs or is involved with such a group. To ensure that the local community fully benefits from the centre’s use, we particularly want to work with not-for-profit groups based in the Petersfield area, who deliver dance courses to either children or adults.

Opening times for community use

  • Monday to Friday after 6pm
  • Weekends

‚ÄčWider access to the space will be available from Monday 11th September. To encourage local groups to come and try it out we won’t be charging for use of the centre between this date and the end of December. From January 2018 we will charge a nominal amout in line with other local spaces. 

For more information about how to book access to the space and for a copy of the terms and conditions of use, please email Amber Christie at: sturtonstreception@csvpa.com or download our booking form.
