The Wharf

Our headquarters are located at The Wharf, Pier 4, Hickson Road, in Sydney’s busy arts precinct at Walsh Bay where other arts companies, including Bangarra Dance Theatre, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs and ATYP are also located. The Company was the second to move to The Wharf, following Sydney Theatre Company in the early 1980s.

Sydney Dance Company are temporarily relocating to Ultimo while vital renovations take place at our home in Walsh Bay. Classes start at our new, custom built Ultimo Studios from Friday 24 August, with last classes at the Wharf on Thursday 23 August. Read more about our Ultimo Studios here.
