Welcome to Bird Studios! We are a multi-purpose, high-spec, professional dance studio space, dedicated to the performing arts in Brighton. We have rehearsal spaces for adults and children’s dance and acting classes, fitness classes and even a fully equipped music recording studio. Whether you are looking to hire out one of our dance studios for rehearsal space, teach an acting or dance class, practice a routine, hold a meeting or rehearse a show we have something for you.

We also have available to hire, our professional recording studio, “The Nest”. It is equipped with high-spec equipment and everything required for all your recording needs. So, whether you want to rehearse with your band or take advantage of our studio sound engineers, you can! At the extremely competitive prices from as little as £8 an hour or from £200 per day!

On top of all the classes we offer and the ability to hire our professional dance studios, we also have our youth theatre group and the facilities to host many different kinds of events. From private tuition, to hen parties and corporate events, to our Saturday stage school, where children aged 7-18 receive professional tuition from current working industry actors and dancers. Our school is based on the mantra of getting the most out of natural talent in the holy trinity of singing, acting and dancing.

Located in the centre of Brighton, all our professional dance studio spaces here are of an exceptionally high quality. They come complete with sprung floors, full length mirrors and powerful sound systems throughout. Our two larger dance studios also come fully equipped with ballet barres. We cater to a wide variety of needs, from flamenco classes and zumba to university assessments and corporate functions. Whatever your requirements we have the solution. Being only a 5 minute walk from Brighton train station, you can pop in and see us, or alternatively give us a call, or fill out the booking form.

You may have noticed a change...

You might have noticed the re branding that has been happening at Bird Studios. That is because Bird Studios has now become the Brighton Institute for Contemporary Theatre Training (BRCITT).  That has meant that the majority of classes at Bird have had to move on. We thank all of our teachers and supporters so much for the past three and a half years and we love you all so much!
