Studio 210 is a beautiful, clean, performance, rehearsal, and class space, as well as being used for photographic and small movie shoots. It has a professional lighting grid, board and sound system as well as an everyday boombox hook-up. 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. In 2012, as part of Art of the Matter’s Strategic Plan, the Residency Program for Studio 210, now in its 7th year, was developed to support up and coming and established artists in the community.
