Dance/NYC Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program

Interested in a Dance/NYC rehearsal space subsidy?


Pentacle is proud to partner with Dance/NYC to promote their New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program and share this grant opportunity with you!

Dance/NYC is pleased to share an open call Request for Expressions of Interest (RFEI) for the New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy (RSS) Program, made possible by the generous support of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

Making NYC dance rehearsal space available via grants.

The purpose of the program is to make affordable rehearsal space available to dance makers who are in critical need of space for the creation and development of their work, while also fostering a more inclusive and just dance field. Rehearsal spaces selected as grantees will receive funding to subsidize the cost of rehearsal space rentals, resulting in more affordable rental rates for artists and dance organizations.


The Dance/NYC rehearsal space program will distribute over $2 million over the course of the grant period (2022-2024) to 16-18 rehearsal spaces. The program provides subsidized rates for dance rehearsal space.

The Dance/NYC RFEI for subsidized dance rehearsal space is the first step of the application process and will serve to identify venues that meet the program’s primary eligibility requirements and justice, equity, and inclusion goals. The deadline for the RFEI is December 10, 2021

Applicants selected through the RFEI process, as well as current grantees of the program, will be invited to submit a full application for the program, to be released January 12, 2022. Up to 30 spaces will be invited to submit a full application for consideration for the program.



Application Assistance

To assist prospective applicants, Dance/NYC will host one webinar and hold one-on-one technical assistance sessions throughout the RFEI phase. Learn more about how to participate in application assistance by visiting Dance/NYC.
