Dance Block

FABnyc’s Dance Block Program works with dance companies and theaters in the Fourth Arts Block neighborhood to make low cost rehearsal space available to dancers and choreographers by centralizing booking during underutilized times.

Dance Block aims to build a network of dance makers who are connected through their creative use of studio spaces and fueled by the collective energy of the local arts district. The program encourages community engagement and networking opportunities through seasonally presented Dance Block Salons and artist workshops.

Dance Block rentals are open to non-commercial choreographers or dance companies rehearsing new or repertory works. Dance artists and groups in search of low cost rehearsal space should call or email to find out if they qualify for FAB’s Dance Block Program, now renting space for the subsidized rate of $10/hour.
