Who are the spaces ideal for?

Our spaces are also perfect for musicians looking for practice space as well as any number of other users/events including meetings, book readings, business retreats, photo shoots, fitness and dance classes, martial arts, birthday events, etc.  Note: as this is an operating arts school, availability may be limited during some days/times.
