“I strongly believe in providing a SAFE space for dance artists to engage in meaningful conversations and explore new ideas, new voices, and new vision is vital. 

It is equally vital to have a nurturing environment where artists can share their artistic expressions without judgment. We invite the community to join us for an evening of breathtaking performances”. --Germaul Barnes, SDW Artistic Director.

Studio Residency

Uniquely conceived in the form of a "village" or town, we have an open gallery for artist exhibitions, a performance space with a stage & church pew seating, a nice wood floor for dance and classwork, and a number of village mini studios which may be occupied by local artists to show or execute their work.
