Moving Up!

Next Steps @ 33 Hawley Street

Just drive by, and you can't help but notice the stunning changes going on at the Arts Trust Building @ 33 Hawley Street. The process of renovation and transformation is well underway, and we are very excited about making the ultimate transition from old space to new. Please stay tuned for updates! We look forward to having a 1200 square-foot studio/rehearsal space and a state-of-the-art dedicated dance studio open after Labor Day. Feel free to call the office at (413) 584-7327 or email for more details including availability and rental rates.

In the meantime, we continue to produce Arts Night Out in conjunction with the Downtown Northampton Association and the Northampton Radio Group. We also support a variety of visual and performing arts events including those connected to our resident companies as well as Pioneer Valley Jazz Shares.
