Subsidized Rehearsal Rentals for New York-based Dance Artists

Announcing Abrons Arts Center Subsidized Rehearsal Rentals for New York-based dance artists.

For more than a century,  Abrons Arts Center has been a home for artists to explore, experiment, investigate, and create. Today, we are excited to launch our newest development opportunity for New York-based danced and movement artists–our Subsidized Space Rental Program, generously funded through a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts. The need for affordable and professional spaces to make work is palpable in NYC. Now, with the support of NYSCA, Abrons will be able to provide accessible rehearsal space to the widest range of dance artists and companies, without the prohibitive costs.

Eligibility and Requirements:

  • You must be a New York State resident to be eligible for these rental rates.
  • You must identify as working within the discipline of dance or a movement-based practice.
  • Studio and theater availability is on a first-come, first-serve basis.

In an effort to ensure that this nonprofit subsidized rehearsal rental rate is available to as many artists as possible, artists are eligible to rent studio and theaters at the NYSCA-sponsored rates for a maximum of fifty hours per year, per artist.

Subsidized theater rental rates are strictly for rehearsals, and are not applicable to staged productions.

Studio 2: $5/hour
Studio 3: $5/hour
Studios 302: $5/hours

Nonprofit Subsidized Theater Rental Rates:
Playhouse Theater and Experimental Theater: $15/hour

Support for Abrons Arts Center’s Subsidized Rehearsal Rental Program is provided by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
