The Joyce Theater is dedicated to our mission to serve and support the dance community, promoting the richness and variety of our beloved art form. We are honored to partner with the New York State Council on the Arts to launch our Subsidized Rehearsal Space program at NYCC&D. Through this program, we offer discounted studio access to dance artists across the city, providing the key resources of time and space for the creative process. From March 2024 through December 2024, The Joyce Theater’s New York Center for Creativity & Dance will offer $10/hr rehearsal space to nonprofit dance companies and freelance dance artists in Studios 1 and 3.

Once we receive your rental inquiry form submission, our rentals team will process the request in a few day's time and reach out with a rental agreement reflecting your requested studio reservation. Once you have signed your agreement you will be prompted to pay online via SquareUp. Your space will not be considered confirmed until your agreement is signed, and payment is received.
