The Performance Garage provides two first floor studio spaces with high ceilings, large windows, and solid mahogany carriage-house doors. These studios are perfect for dance and rehearsals, productions, workshops, and auditions. In addition, the studios are available for film and video shoots, as well as community meetings.

The Performance Garage is committed to reducing the barriers for dance companies to produce their work. Acting as an incubator for local talent, we offer dance artists subsidized rental rates.
