Our Spaces

We have 4 dance studios, each with sprung floors, mirrors, and fixed ballet barres. They are suited to all kinds of dance, including tap, ballet, street, and contemporary. Studios 1 and 2 are separated by a partition that can be taken down to form one larger studio, as are studios 3 and 4.

All kit required for dance classes can be purchased directly from our dance shop here at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. For more information about kit, email Annalisa Biagini (

Our two rehearsal rooms are mirrored and contain portable ballet barres. For more information or to hire a rehearsal room, email

The round studio seats around 80 people and is used for productions and showcases. The small space allows for intimate performances for parents of students in our Stage School and Youth Theatre.

The 312-seat auditorium is used for a wide variety of theatre and dance performances, including full-length productions put on by our Stage School and Youth Theatre.

In our Pottery studios we have space for hand building and wheel thrown pottery, as well as an in-house kiln so everything can be fired on site.

Our music room is set up for a band, with some tech and instruments provided. This includes a small mixing desk, drum kit, keyboard, electric guitar, bass guitar, mics, and amps.

All equipment required to process and develop black and white film is provided in our dark room, as well as the support of an experienced photographer.

Units 5 and 6 behind the Arts Centre contain our animation lab, which has an in-studio computer suite fully equipped for digital, as well as materials for traditional hand-drawn animation and crafting character sculptures built from scratch.

The 2D room is used for our art classes and is suitable for all kinds of artistic endeavors, including painting and life drawing

Embrace 2024 and join us at Aberystwyth Arts Centre for unforgettable experiences and new learning adventures. Together, let’s make this year one that will be remembered for creativity, joy, and the magic of the arts! 🌈✨
