Building for the Arts has announced that it will offer subsidized, affordable rehearsal space to artists and companies at its Theatre Row Rehearsal Studios, located in NYC's Theater District.

This subsidized rehearsal space opportunity is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature. Building for the Arts will offer 1,500 hours of rehearsal studio time in Theatre Row Studios 3, 5, and 6 at subsidized rates of $8-$10 per hour. Subsidized rehearsal spaces at Theatre Row are available first come, first served, and are limited to 100 hours per company/entity, with a minimum of 2 hours per booking. The subsidized rates will remain available until all 1,500 hours are claimed.

“Building for the Arts and Theatre Row are grateful to NYSCA for this support, which bolsters our ongoing commitment to center artists by providing them with inclusive and accessible opportunities to aid them in the development of their work,” said Cierra Cass, Theatre Row's Director of Theatre Programs and Partnerships.

Studios 3 and 6 (max capacity 15), which are normally rented for $22 per hour, will be available for $8 per hour, while Studio 5 (max capacity 20), which is normally rented for $25 per hour, will be available for $10 per hour. Additional amenities that are available at no additional charge include folding tables and chairs, music stands, full length mirrors, ballet barres (if requested), pianos (in Studios 5 and 6), wi-fi connection, and vending machines. Studios are open and available 80 hours per week, 10:00 AM to 10:00 PM Monday-Saturday and 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM on Sunday.

Bookings can be made by emailing Rehearsal Studio Manager Scott Pegg at studios@theatrerow.org. More info at bfany.org/theatre-row/rehearsalstudios/. Theatre Row Studios are located at 411 W 41st Street, New York, NY 10036.
