Every week at the Jerwood DanceHouse on the Ipswich Waterfront, we host over 50 dance classes and courses in our world-class dance studios. Covering a huge variety of styles, for all ages and abilities, including contemporary, creative, zumba, tots & co, adult ballet, tap and musical theatre to name just a few! DanceEast is so much more than what is presented in the theatre - we bring dance to people in schools, hospices and sheltered housing. Working with people from all walks of life; from disadvantaged backgrounds and those with special needs, we're privileged to see how dance changes lives every day. DanceEast delivers ground-breaking work through projects working with 'looked after' children and those at risk, as well as children in hospitals and older people in care homes, offering them all the opportunity to use dance for creative expression and physical and psychological therapy. Dance can energise, motivate, encourage creative thinking, and develop expressive minds and healthy bodies.

The cafe at dance east is a real gem - good value with a lovely atmosphere and very family friendly. A good selection of healthy and not so healthy food for all tastes

We saw 'The Little match Girl' at Dance East before Christmas and only wished we had taken some children to share in the magical evening. Friendly place, comfortable, and high standard of production and performance.

An amazing evening of top-class contemporary dance by Russell Maliphant's company. A packed and attentive audience gave a special quality to the intimate space of the Studio Theatre. Why go to London when it's here on our doorstep (and you can see perfectly from every...More

I love this place. It's so great. I just wish there were more lights etc when you come out of this place. As a woman alone, it would be nice if it felt a little safer. Classes are great here though!
