Studio Use Program

Community artists and organizations use our studios for classes, workshops, rehearsal and special events and performances.  The Dance Foundation fills a niche for community artists, providing comfortable, affordable and professional studio space for their activities.

In addition to four studios, we have a a 100- seat theatre with lighting and sound equipment, a backstage area and dressing rooms.  This space is available to the community and fits a unique need with intimate seating and a sprung dance floor.  This space can also serve as a studio or meeting place.
