Work commences at Central’s new South Bank premises

Wednesday 20th February 2019 Anita Hamilton writes:

Central today announces that work has begun on the bespoke fit-out of our new premises in London’s arts community on the South Bank in Southwark following a successful fundraising campaign.

The £9million project involves the full relocation of the school to its new premises including the fit-out of the building. In March 2017 Central announced a campaign to raise £6million to finance the development and now, less than two years later, under £1million is required for the final stages of the Paris Gardens building. Support to date has come from individuals, major Trusts and Foundations and from two loans; £3million from Southwark Council and £600,000 from the Arts Impact Fund. Fundraising continues in earnest to repay the two loans.

Students on Central’s undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes will begin using the new South Bank premises during the academic year 2019/20.

The new Paris Gardens premises will feature amenities to rival dance training facilities anywhere in the UK; seven studios, a fully-equipped studio theatre, study and resource centres. The fit-out will include a state-of-the-art health suite providing psychology, nutrition, physiotherapy, Pilates and recovery from injury programme.

The aim is to become a hub for a dynamic dance community combining excellence in dance training for those aiming for a professional career and a programme of opportunities for the local Southwark community.
