In line with current safety advice from the Victorian Government, Dancehouse has limited operations and access during COVID-19


Located in North Carlton, Dancehouse is a performance venue dedicated to contemporary dance with a comfortable foyer, bar and amenities, two flexible studio spaces, upstairs and a theatre with backstage, and garden on the ground floor.

While Dancehouse spaces are primarily set-up for dance performances, rehearsals and workshops, they are versatile and available for a wide range of applications. Dancehouse has played host to talking events, music gigs, parties, photo shoots, community festivals and corporate planning days.


Due to the current Victorian Government Stay at Home directive for Melbourne, Dancehouse is closed.
