Posted on: 8/10/2019 6:00PM

English National Ballet’s purpose-built new home in Canning Town East London, has officially opened by the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan and is now open to the public.

 

The 93,000-sq ft. state-of-the-art building gives English National Ballet the space and facilities needed to continue to develop world-class artists, create new works that push the boundaries of ballet, and offer new jobs, skills and training opportunities for local communities.

 

English National Ballet’s new state of the art home will provide a world-class centre for ballet in East London. £1million from the Mayor’s Good Growth Fund towards the new purpose-built home will generate jobs and apprenticeships for people in the local community. 

 

The new home houses a production studio with fly tower, seven full-sized studios, state-of-the-art wardrobe, medical facilities and public spaces.
