Venue Description

Dance Base is on a mission to get more people dancing. The organisation exists to encourage and celebrate the potential for dance in everyone. Our Mission As a National Centre for Dance in Scotland, we offer a vibrant and uplifting focal point for dance as an art form, a way to exercise, and a way of life. We reach out to inspire wellbeing and creativity, and cultivate a future for dance in local, national and international communities. We believe that dance is for everyone; from babies to seniors and people of all abilities. If you or someone you know has access requirements we will do everything we can to offer assistance. Whilst we aim to make every class accessible for everyone people with additional support needs can find classes especially for them too.


Dance Base is accessible with lift or level access to all areas of the building. Accessible toilets and changing facilities can be found opposite reception and next to the main changing rooms at the rear of the building. Fixed induction loops are provided at the reception counter and in studio two, three and four. A portable induction loop is available for use in other areas of the building. It can be borrowed from reception. A fully accessible family play area is situated at the rear of the building. Large print brochures can be found in the reception area.
