Digging Into Dance Block

For the past four years, Fourth Arts Block has been offering an alternative solution to the rehearsal space crisis many New York City dance artists face. Working with many of its 28 organizational members, Fourth Arts Block formed Dance Block, a program providing low-cost rehearsal space through centralized booking of multiple, individually owned studio spaces. This attempt to serve an artistic population (historically known as severely undercompensated) has been extremely well-received, with over 500 dance makers enrolled!

This summer we felt it was time to check in with our Dance Blockers and see how the program has played a role in their creative process.

With our FABLES projects completed and installed, we are excited to offer an exclusive, guided tour of our five FABLES sites and artwork, hosted by FABnyc's Director of Public Art, Keith Schweitzer. This FREE tour will be a final chance to learn of many of the work's historical and personal relevance to the Lower East Side (as projects Feed Me a Story and Lower East Side Heroines transition out of their homes at First Street Green Park and Centre-Fuge Public Art Project at the end of this month).
