The stunning building is built into a hillside and virtually invisible from Bramall Lane which runs alongside it. U-Mix includes football pitches, a dance studio. recording studio, digital media suite, fitness gym and youth club facilities.

Chance To Dance

Chance to Dance is a one day city centre dance festival that was established in 2000. The original idea came from Sheffield’s involvement in the World Health Organisation European Healthy City Movement. The one day Sheffield Festival was very popular involving around 30 different dance groups on open ‘stages’ across the city centre. Dance groups reflect the wide diversity of cultures and types of dance available in the city. Part of the ethos of the festival is to encourage people to join in and have a go. This means that, since the start of Chance to Dance, up to 50,000 people have taken part in trying out different forms of dance – from Salsa to Bhangra from Ballroom to Modern Jive.

Sheffield Creative Guild

The Guild will be an active, driving force in the city’s creative life – joining creative together and raising us up. We want the world to know what the city is made of. Perhaps more importantly, we want the city to know what it has – this rich diversity of world-class talent, on the doorstep.
