Independence Community Foundation (ICF) Studio











Size: 18' x 40' (720 sq. ft.)

The Independence Community Foundation (ICF) Studio is an 18' x 40' column-free studio, fully-equipped with a triple-basketweave sprung sub floor, covered with a Marley-type PVC dance floor, portable and fixed ballet barres, a piano, and a boombox. A TV and DVD player are available upon request. It is bright with natural light, plus central heat and air-conditioning.

ICF is located on the 4th floor of the Mark Morris Dance Center and is in close proximity to locker rooms, restrooms, a lounge, and a terrace.

This studio (and the Independence Community Foundation studio) is approved for flamenco shoes. 

Ideal for:

  • Rehearsals
  • Photo + Film Shoots

With support from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, we recently replaced the floors in three of the Dance Center’s original studios—the James and Martha Duffy Performance Space and the Robert W. Cole and Independence Community Foundation Studios. The new flooring (Harlequin Cascade™) was chosen because it is well-suited to a range of dance styles, including percussive forms like tap and flamenco. The floors are seamless and have a high-quality matte finish which provides just the right amount of grip.
