Bethany Arts Community ( BAC ), in Ossining, NY, now offers low-cost rehearsal rates in its new dance studios. This opportunity provides viable and affordable rehearsal space to the region’s dancers, choreographers, and performing artists. These are same dance floors that have already been used by renowned dance companies such as the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company, Pilobolus, and A Palo Seco Flamenco.
Individual choreographers and dance groups can take advantage of a subsidized rate of $10/hour. Nonprofit, fiscally sponsored and community efforts may be eligible for even further discounted rates.
Bethany’s main dance studio is 40 x 26, and features: custom-built sprung floor with marley, freestanding ballet barres, movable and fixed full-wall mirrors, large windows on three walls overlooking expansive grounds, heating, cross-ventilation, ceiling fans, and wi-fi.
The larger dance floor in BAC’s main performance space (a former chapel) is 52 x 26, and features: custom-built sprung floor with marley, available freestanding ballet barres and full-size mirrors, 20 foot ceilings, extra tall windows, heating, cross-ventilation, air-conditioning (expected Summer 2019), and wi-fi. The larger dance floor has more limited availability as the performance space is frequently being used to present artists and other programming.
To reserve dance studio time, artists should call BAC at 914-944-4278 or email [email protected]
Subsidized rehearsal space and other programs at Bethany are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
