BOOK YOUR SPOT via schedule



What an incredible journey it has been since Giuliana & Montse first crossed paths in 2005 while dancing for the same company! TripSpace’s inception was nothing short of a casual chat in our ever-changing dressing room conversations during those stage appearances.

Fast forward to 2013, and after eight years of dreaming, countless ventures, and spontaneous performance nights in some of the quirkiest places imaginable—think snooker clubs, warehouses, basement bars, and more—we finally found our place. We secured a lease in a railway arch in Haggerston, all thanks to the invaluable support of investor Peter Fiala.

Today, TripSpace stands as a respected organization, continuously driving forward with projects funded by @aceagrams and @hackeycouncil. It has become a hub for experimental dance and a beloved destination for yoga, health, and well-being. We take great pride in offering top-tier teaching while keeping inclusivity and excellence at the very core of our services.

We couldn’t have reached this point without the unwavering support of each and every one of you. Here’s to the remarkable journey we’ve undertaken together, and to many more exciting adventures on the horizon! Thank you for being part of the TripSpace family. 🌟🙏

Thank you for joining us on this journey!
