ICTheatre Manchester Facilities

ICTheatre Manchester is located in The Dancehouse, one of the city’s most distinctive and respected venues.

The building occupies three floors of a 1930s Art Deco building on Manchester’s famous ‘student corridor’, Oxford Road, just a few minutes walk from the city centre and very close to our partner college BIMM Institute Manchester.

Shared occupancy with the Northern Ballet School means both colleges work side by side giving students unparalleled training in the high end, purpose-built spaces.


The Dancehouse

The Dancehouse provides one of the most comprehensively appointed training facilities to be found. Not only do the five generous studios have a professional standard sprung beech wood Harlequin floor, each is equipped with full-height wall mirrors, barres, infra-red heating, cooling fans and a piano.

The gem in the crown is the original Art Deco, 400 seat theatre that has one of the largest stages in Manchester, meaning ICTheatre students will enjoy facilities that most drama school students can only dream of.

Northern Ballet School is an international centre of excellence in training for classical ballet and musical theatre and complements perfectly the groundbreaking degrees in Performing Arts that ICTheatre is known for.

Alongside the amazing dance studio spaces, there is also a library with IT and study facilities, a well-equipped first aid/physiotherapy room and a cafe for students and staff serving fresh food and drinks. ICTheatre will be adding a motion capture and TV studio and a brand new iMac suite equipped with all the latest technology.
