All Gender Bathrooms

We're committed to providing a safe and inclusive environment for our community at Dancenorth, which includes transgender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, and intersex people. Access to safe toilets is a fundamental aspect of this, which is why we offer all-gender bathrooms. Some of the bathrooms contain stalls and urinals, while others contain stalls only. Look out for our signage which communicates what facilities are in each bathroom. All visitors are entitled to use the bathroom of their choice
