Dogtown Dance Theatre

  • Description: Nestled within the Manchester Residential and Commercial Historic District on the south side of the James River in Richmond, Virginia, is the newly-renovated Dogtown Dance Theatre. Located at 109 West 15th Street, the former Bainbridge Junior High School Gymnasium was built in 1939. Just as sports and recreation once were the principal activity on this site; dance, performance and community outreach comprises the essential purpose of this beautifully refurbished facility.<br /><br />Dogtown Dance Theatre, on the second level of the building, offers a flexible 46 by 31 foot stage (not including the wings) and seating for up to 200 audience members. The third floor offers studio/rehearsal space and the lower level offers a full dressing room for performers.<br /><br />As a flexible mid-sized facility with a full catering kitchen, Dogtown Dance Theatre is available to the public to rent for special events.<br /><br />Affordable space for small businesses with a primary focus on (but not limited to) performing arts, community outreach, or socially responsible, progressive business practices is available for lease on the first level.<br /><br />Free parking for up to 100 vehicles is available in the adjacent lot and surrounding streets.
