The BIG Move
On Friday 13 May, we finally made the BIG move to our new home in Sneinton - the international Centre for Choreography.
It was a sad farewell to College Street Centre, which we called home for four and a half years. We are hugely thankful to our friends at College Street Centre.
Prior to being located at College Street Centre, we were based in Hockley so now having moved into state-of-the-art spaces in the East side of the city, it feels somewhat like we've come back to our spiritual home!
It is fantastic to have finally established our international Centre for Choreography and be up and running there now after years of meticulous planning and months of final preparation and excitement! The centre supports research and creative collaboration between people, spaces and places. It hosts international and UK artists and the public as participants, makers and commentators in order to create extraordinary experiences for all.

Shortly after it was announced, that we would be moving to new spaces, we began a public fundraising drive called Campaign25 and we are overwhelmed by the support we have received. Campaign25 is Dance4's public campaign of 25 fundraising events to raise £25,000 to move into a new home for dance in our 25th year!
Dance4 thanks all their donors, staff and fundraisers!
As part of Campaign25 Dance4 made connections and networks with the communities of Sneinton and St Annes through the Nottingham Light Night Project.
92% of the Campaign25 target has now been achieved thanks to our Text DNCE70 £1 to 70070 campaign.
Dance4's Centre for Choreography is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with further support from Nottingham City Council, The Garfield Weston Foundation, The Jessie Spencer Trust, The Idlewild Trust, Wren & J N Derbyshire Trust. The centre is sponsored by GDS and Clarke’s of Nottingham. We would also like to thank David Stewart OBE and Christopher and Julia Barron for their significant support of this project.
