Dancers and choreographers:

We are thrilled to announce that through December 31, 2024, Snug Harbor Cultural Center & Botanical Garden received a generous grant that allows you to apply for subsidized dance rehearsal space here on our grounds.

Dance/NYC’s New York City Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, made possible by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is an exciting program which makes affordable rehearsal space available at discounted rates to dance makers whose previous dance work has been publicly presented.  In a city where artists are in critical need of affordable space for the creation and development of their work, this program also fosters a more inclusive and fair dance field, with a focus on accessibility, geography, and the demographics of artists served.

Dance makers interested in applying for use of subsidized space should fill out this form to be considered. Our staff will follow up with you within 1-3 business days of receipt. For inquiries, contact Eric Hagmueller at or 718-425-3572.
