Welcome to our directory of dance rental spaces. Discover space for your next performance, rehearsal, audition, workshop, or fundraiser. Searching and listing spaces are both free.

This is an inclusive directory that contains traditional dance spaces, and alternative mutli-use spaces open to rentals by dancers. You can search for amenities like marley, sprung flooring, barres, mirrors, percussive footwear allowed, or search by location, rate or size.

Is there a space that you love that doesn’t have a dance friendly floor? Many spaces can be repurposed for dance with the rental of BDA’s portable sprung wood floor!

This directory is made possible through a Community Partnership
