Rents floor time to local dance organizations and instructors.
Rents the facility for private events.

The Dance Space events are held in a studio on the second floor of a small shopping center directly on Broad Street (Studio-804). It is located half way between Horsepen Road and Libbie Avenue on the North side of Broad. The studio is above the Mekong Restaurant with our entrance downstairs to the right of the Mekong.
