About the studio

The Studio was completed in 2012 as part of the City West development. It features a professional Harlequin Liberty sprung ballet floor – the best dance floor available, and the same floor used by world-renowned dance companies such as the Bolshoi Ballet. There is a strict ‘no street shoes’ and no percussive dance (e.g. tap) and no high heel policy for this floor.

Studio hire rates per hour

  • $27 per hour for members;
  • $33 per hour for non-members;

Studio availability

CDT events and classes take priority, so please confirm and book any studio availability with the CDT office staff well before your activities or you may be disappointed. CDT reserves the right to review regular hires, and adjust hire times to suit CDT workshops in consultation with hirers.
