Subsidized Studio Rental Program
The Mark Morris Dance Group has established a rental subsidy program to provide rehearsal space to the dance community at deeply discounted rates. This program is supported by generous grants from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and Balletmakers/Capezio. Dance companies and individual dance artists must meet the funders' guidelines to qualify for a subsidized rate. The Mark Morris Dance Center allows qualifying dance companies or artists 75 hours of rehearsal space at the subsidized rate per fiscal year.
