We warmly invite you! We have been referred to as a 'Renegade Theater' and told we are 'Old San Francisco'. Often guests compare us to their favorite Brooklyn or Berlin style Art lofts. Our space features a huge 1300sqt sprung dance floor/stage with new Marley Flooring, which is Black/White reversible. Our west facing wall of windows lets the natural light in all day & in the afternoon it streams beautifully across the walls. The studio mirrors span 30ft by 8ft and we have 2 portable ballet barres. For an additional rental; there are a few in-house strobes, modifiers, backdrops, stands, tripods and other theater lights . However, feel free to bring your own gear. Our studio is equipped with amenities such as: a utility sink in the bathroom & a vintage (yet fully operational) claw foot bath tub with an over-head shower attachment.

I am so thankful to the folks at Daylight Dance/Little Boxes Theatre!! Really wonderful folks that put a lot of care and concern into how they hold the space for visiting artists. They were so nice/sweet/wonderful to me and my students and extremely flexible with time and tech. Will most def be finding my way back there in the future!
What a great and flexible space! Aaron and Kitty were fantastic hosts. I held a 40 person leadership seminar there, and they worked closely with us to make sure the space fit our needs. They had a sound system that was already set up and they helped us secure an additional bathroom with a neighboring business. The place has a lot of artsy character and is somewhere I'd definitely be willing to use again.
