San José Dance Theatre Has Moved!

San José Dance Theatre is excited to announce a move to a larger facility which will allow for continued growth starting this fall! The space is 5,600 square feet, has three studios, viewing areas, lobby, costume room, dressing rooms, restrooms, a large lunch/study room, a green room, air conditioning and heating, and plenty of free parking all around the building. It is conveniently located at the Brokaw exit of 880, near the Junction Fry’s Electronics.

A special thanks to our Production Director, Lee Forbes, and to all of the volunteers who helped us with the move. We couldn’t have done it without every one of you!
