New spaces to open at Gibney 280: Take the survey!

Gina Gibney (CEO/Artistic Director) and Craig Peterson (Director of Programs and Presentation) hosted a town hall meeting last evening at Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center to address the organization's goal of developing an additional 10,000 square feet of raw space at its 280 Broadway location.
The key issues we face are how to raise funds for the renovation, how to create a sustainable operating model, and how to deploy the space to best advantage [for] the NYC dance community.
Preliminary plans show the potential for as much as seven new rental spaces in an area currently rented from Gibney Dance by Pace University on a short-term basis. Gibney and Peterson describe this area as perfect for dance with less column obstruction and beautiful windows providing lots of natural light.

The town hall drew a small attendance, but Gibney Dance hopes to extend its engagement and dialogue with the community via an online survey to determine space needs, priorities and preferences.

You are invited to participate in the survey and to share it widely with your friends and colleagues in the dance community so that more voices can be heard.
