Studio 210

Studio 210  has been a sanctuary for dancers artists in the heart of San Francisco for 40 years and counting. This clean, beautiful space can be used for performances, rehearsals and classes as well as photographic and small movie shoots.  It has a professional lighting grid, board and sound system as well as an everyday bluetooth speaker. In a time of shrinking budgets &  loss of unobstructed space, Studio 210 has been a constant of subsidized rentals, fostering up-and-coming dancers, choreographers, actors, directors, visual artists and teachers. The Studio 210 Residency program was founded in 2012, and supports up and coming and established artists in the community. Learn more. 

Another Way of Looking

Another Way of Looking (AWoL) is a project that aims to provide valuable resources to the performing arts community during this unprecedented time. As audiences become accustomed to virtual content, we want to help artists in expanding their practice to include these elements. By creating a video tutorial library and connections to professionals, AWoL allows artists to develop the skill sets necessary to remain visible and vital while COVID restrictions and closures remain in place and beyond!
