Studios 1 and 2 are 14 x 11 metres and Studio 3 is 14 x 14 metres.
All studios feature high ceilings, sprung wooden floors, stereos with iPod facilities, evaporative cooling and gas heating. Toilets are located adjacent to the studios. Access to showers is available on request. Kitchen facilities and Green Room (rest room – not to be used for dancing) are also available.
Studios 1 and 3 have portable mirrors. Studio 2 has barres, mirrors, tarkett, and a piano (fee applies for use of piano).
Bookings are made online through Culture and the Arts (WA), a division of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industry.
Please note that your bookings are NOT secure until payment is processed. They will not be held in the system if you do not complete the entire booking and payment process. You must click on the “Pay Now” button (shown but not completed in the video below) and wait for a confirmation page.
Please remember that bookings are in 2-hour blocks, so if you normally have a 4-hour booking you will need to make two consecutive 2-hour bookings.
Optional Extras: The mirrors and barres are shown as optional extras but are provided at no charge and do not need to be booked. They remain in the studios and will be removed from the booking system soon. If you hire the rostra or Tarkett, please note that you must arrange set up/pack down yourself, we only supply the equipment.
The video below shows the booking process.
You can access the Studio Bookings page here. To check available dates and times first, click “Book Now” next to your preferred studio. Select dates, check availability and select available times to book using the calendar and drop down menu on the right-hand side of each studio’s page.
After you select an available time, click the “Book Now” button below it and you will be taken to the checkout page. Don’t checkout until you have added all your bookings! You can click on the “Make another booking” button at the top of the page to continue booking additional studio times.
If you want to book the rostra or Tarkett as an optional extra, please select it and click the “Confirm” button at the bottom of the page (this was skipped in the video).
Finish adding all your bookings before entering a voucher code (such as an Ausdance WA member discount code), and before filling out your details and completing the payment process (checking out).
Though not shown in the video, a correct voucher code will automatically adjust your total and you must click on the “Pay Now” button shown. Once your payment is processed, you will be taken to a confirmation page. You will also receive an email confirmation and receipt for your bookings.
The following rates will apply for bookings made to 30 June 2018 inclusive. The member discount code is available from our Members Only Area. Bookings are currently open until the end of March 2018 and will be open until the end of June with the launch of the new booking system by Perth Theatre Trust.
The new Studio Hire Rates Card for bookings for 1 July 2018 onwards will be announced in March. No information on future hire rates is available from Ausdance WA or Perth Theatre Trust until that announcement.
Studio hire rates as of October 1st 2016:
Current Ausdance WA Members: $22 per 2-hour block.
Non-Members/Commercial Hirers: $132 per 2-hour block.
All rates inclusive of GST. Hire rates are subject to review by the Department of Local Government, Sport & Cultural Industries.
3 days (72 hours) minimum noticed is required for a studio booking cancellation request. The Property office at Culture and the Arts (WA) will cancel your booking as soon as possible, however, refunds are batch-processed at the beginning of the following month.
Please enter contact details and details of the booking(s) to be cancelled below. Contact must be the same as original booking.
There is now a limited option to have your credit swapped* to a new studio booking provided your full credit can be applied. This means:
You must select to swap all your cancelled bookings so the Property office at Culture and the Arts (WA) can transfer all your credit, as under Consumer Law they cannot issue a partial refund.
If you do not wish to swap your cancelled bookings to new times then a full cancellation and refund will be processed by the Property office at Culture and the Arts (WA) and you will be notified and instructed to re-book the times you wish to retain through the Booking System yourself.
*Please check availability here before requesting a swap and understand that there may be a time delay before the Property office at Culture and the Arts (WA) can secure it, so the swap is not guaranteed. If you urgently need the new booking, do not request a swap and book it now with a new payment.
Your booking Order Number is available in your booking confirmation email. All bookings on an Order Number must be cancelled at once, so if you have bookings to be RETAINED that are on the same Order Number as a cancellation, please indicate in the lower part of the form and ensure you have selected available swaps for the bookings you wish to cancel.
Please note that the management of the studios is conducted by AUSDANCE WA on behalf of Culture and the Arts (WA), a division of the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. Any queries regarding studio bookings should be directed to Ausdance WA and NOT to other offices located within the King Street Arts Centre. The Ausdance WA offices are open from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
