APPA-NI is based at its newly developed, specialist physical arts centre in Castlereagh, Belfast. Meticulously designed and finished to the highest of standards, there is no other facility of its type in Northern Ireland.

The Dance Studio houses a 14m x 18m Harlequin sprung floor - the newest of its kind in Northern Ireland. The room's high ceiling, mirrors, barres, music centre and Piano means it can facilitate dance and displays of any standard.

Our 14m x 14m Rhythmic Floor is of continental high performance and is dressed in a low friction carpet on a sprung sub-base, providing high quality cushioning and rebound for students and performers.

The 14.5m x 15m Aerial Space facilitates six suspended training units. These include two silks, two ropes, two extended trapeze and two hoop lyra. The considered design of the aerial space means training can be undertaken and overseen in the safest possible physical environment.

The Airtrack and Acrobatic area is 9m x 14.5m.

All APPA-NI's training facilities are available for public hire. Training areas and the dance studio can be used for rehearsals, filming, examinations, competitions, auditions, photo shoots, seminars, meetings and classes and offer the following facilities:
