Our dance studio and office are based in Spencer Yard, Leamington Spa, which is a development funded by Warwick District Council that forms part of the Creative Quarter in the town. We share the space with a variety of other arts and creative organisations. Spencer Yard is extremely central and lies across the River Leam in Old Town, 250 metres from a 62 capacity car park. We’re located near major bus routes and about 400 metres away (under a 5 minute walk) from Leamington’s Railway Station and the same distance from the centre of the town.
Arriving by car:
From the North – From the A46 follow signs for Leamington Spa, A452 and then for the town centre. Once you are in the town centre on the Parade (the main shopping high street), continue straight on until you see a large church on your left after a river bridge. Take the next right into Spencer Street and then an immediate right into Spencer Yard, just before The Avenue pub.
From the South – Exit M40 at Junction 13 onto A452 following signs for Leamington Spa. Then follow signs for the town centre (A452). You’ll then see directions for Newbold Comyn, follow these until you see The Assembly Rooms on your right hand side and a columned white church on the left. We are the next turning on the left off Spencer Street, straight after the traffic lights and the Avenue Bar and Hotel.

Cross over the road here and you’ll see a gate in between the black and white house and a white columned church. Go through this gate and you’ll see the Spencer Yard building right in front of you.
