“We were fortunate to be able to stay in the neighborhood,” says Artistic Director Igal Perry. “…though our dancers and students come from around the globe, it’s vital for us to maintain our roots at Union Square and stay close to the local and vibrant dance community.”
The building was originally constructed as the Van Tassall & Kearney Horse Auction Mart at the turn of the 20th century, and was the studio of painter, printmaker and sculptor Frank Stella from 1978 to 2005.
