A Home for Dance
The Old Fire Station is a home for dance in central Oxford offering a wide range of classes and space for professional dancers to create and showcase work. See our Classes page for what we offer and also our Artist Member scheme for more information about how we can help with professional development. We work in partnership with Oxford Dance Forum
to support the professional development of dance through the Home Bed programme.
Through an open approach to exhibition programming, we aim to give support to a range of artists, curators and artists groups, as well as creating opportunities for collaborations with other art forms. Working closely with Crisis Skylight, and integrating with the shop, theatre and dance spaces, we aim to bring an outstanding and wideranging programme to the public.
