*Dancewave is able to automatically offer NYC-based dance artists a subsidized hourly rehearsal rate (Studio A or B: $18/hr ○ Full Studio: $23/hr) thanks to a grant received by Dance/NYC’s New York City Dance Rehearsal Space Subsidy Program, made possible by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

Our Class Share Program supports and amplifies artists seeking to share and cultivate their teaching practices among a supportive and engaged community. By acting as a community hub for artists, educators and visionaries, Dancewave invites mission-aligned artists to join the Class Share Program and benefit from access to Dancewave’s space and organizational resources.
