We are Shockout

Student Life

The City of Manchester


At our campuses, we aim to provide quality training for you, our students. Our main campus is at Studio 25, found at the heart of Manchester city. It is strategically situated just outside the Arndale mall and with Co-op and Tesco stores nearby. Aside from being the home of Shockout by day, Studio 25 offers various classes at night such as yoga, aerial hoop and dance classes of different styles. They also regularly host pop-up dance workshops from leading choreographers. Here, you are encouraged to further develop your technique and even try something new.

Just a short walk from Studio 25, the Nuffield Health Manchester Fitness & Wellbeing Gym (Printworks) also provides training space. As a perk of being a Shockout student, you get to use the gym’s facilities—work out at their fully equipped gym, take a refreshing dip in the pool, or unwind in the steam/sauna room.

With our partnership with the University of Bolton, some classes are held at their Queen’s campus where the Bolton School of the Arts is based. The Queen’s Specialist Building has three studios and a beautiful theatre space, which we share with the other Theatre and Performing Arts courses. After class, you can grab a quick meal and lounge around with your friends at the canteen. You also have access to useful study resources, such as the library and computer rooms.
