DRS Announcement: COVID-19

In response to on-going developments surrounding COVID-19 worldwide, Dance Research Studio has decided to stop public activities from Monday 16th March until further notice. We take the safeguarding of our artistic community very seriously and believe it is necessary to support and comply with the closure of non-essential public spaces at this time.

We will maintain a social media presence and are considering ways of keeping creative work going through online discussion and research. We very much look forward to welcoming back our associate and residency artists, teachers, students and others to the studio when the situation has changed for the better.

In the meantime we wish you all well.
Jacky Lansley, Director

Community Classes

Dance Research Studio hosts a number of evening classes led by locally based practitioners. It is an ideal space for dance and holistic practices, including Yoga, Tribal Belly Dance, Kathak, Meditation, Alexander Technique and Tai Chi. DRS is always looking to extend its programme of community classes and welcome enquiries from new teachers.

At Pilates with Lucy we work with men and women who want to improve their strength and stability, ease back pain, become more flexible and understand their mind and body better through functional movement. We give you the tools so that even when you’re not with us on the mat, you know how your body should move to be at its optimum. We want you to value Pilates as highly as we do, so you can expect a fun, relaxed environment with you and your needs at the core of every single class. 

Each class takes only a maximum of 12 people and it’s a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
Booking in advance is necessary as spaces are limited.
