As we look at ways we can support the black community and lift black voices, we compiled a list of resources that includes black-led dance and arts organizations and groups doing important advocacy work to undo racism. Visit our Resource page to learn more.

Subsidized Rehearsal Space Program

Subsidized Rehearsal Space

The Mark Morris Dance Group’s Subsidized Rehearsal Space Program supports local dance artists by reducing the financial barrier to renting space in New York City.

If you are a dance company or choreographer, you can book any studio at the Mark Morris Dance Center for $10/hour. The space must be booked for a rehearsal to receive the rate. Through this program the Mark Morris Dance Group offers 500 subsidized hours per month on a first come, first served basis. Once these hours have been booked for the month, you can rent additional space at the Nonprofit or Individual/Commercial rate. You can see how many hours are left on any given month by checking our tracker.

To join this program, as a first time renter you may fill out our Space Rental Request Form. To join this program as a returning renter, contact the Rental Programs Manager.

If you are not a dance artist, please inquire about our discounted rehearsal rates for non-profit organizations.

This program is supported in part through Dance/NYC’s New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, as well as through the Marta Heflin Foundation, Friends of MMDG, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
