Overview
More
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.

I was very impressed to find that their takeaway packaging is biodegradable and they offer vegan options. The service is also very polite and friendly.

This is a really nice, comfy, high quality, small venue, in a great location, and they put on a good variety of works. I've seen several works here, the sound and lighting are also excellent, all in all a great venue for dance.

Found this place by accident while using the adjacent marina. Had a spot of lunch there and it was well worth it. Service good, food fresh and plentiful and value for money. Staff were very friendly too.
