DRS Announcement: COVID-19

In response to on-going developments surrounding COVID-19 worldwide, Dance Research Studio has decided to stop public activities 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
