More Info

The NACC Rehearsal Space Program is designed to address the financial challenges faced by performing artists with limited resources. By offering subsidized rehearsal spaces, the program aims to support both established groups and emerging talent. It aims to foster creativity, nurture artistic excellence, and cultivate a vibrant and inclusive cultural landscape.

The program covers up to 95% of the rental costs for performers who are looking to perfect their art. The spaces will also be available for longer times each day with extended hours from 10am until 9pm to allow for increased scheduling flexibility.

The NACC will be offering this flexible and affordable access to five diverse rehearsal spaces. Each rehearsal space featuring unique amenities including:

  • dance studio with wood floor & full mirrors
  • classroom with wifi
  • 900 seat theater & stage with grand piano
  • 75 seat blackbox theater
  • gym/ soundstage

Images of the spaces can be found on the NACC’s website, or you may tour the building spaces by making an appointment with Dana Tyrrell, NACC Gallery Co-Director and Rental Coordinator who will be overseeing the implementation of the new program.

Any artist, or group in need of rehearsal space is eligible to take advantage of this opportunity for up to 100 hours of rehearsal time between now and Dec 31, 2024. Sign up is on a first come, first serve basis only.

Online Registration opens April 2, 2024 at 10am.
