Through a grant from the New York State Council on the Arts, Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning is proud to offer deeply discounted rehearsal space to creative artists throughout the calendar year 2022. In addition to space for rehearsals at both JCAL and the Jamaica Performing Arts Center (JPAC), artists may use spaces for various creative projects, such as film and photo shoots, and more.

Under this program, rehearsal space is priced at $10/hr. Rehearsal space may not be used for auditions, classes, workshops, or showings.

Spaces Offered at JCAL/JPAC

At Jamaica Center for Arts and Learning (161-04 Jamaica Avenue), we offer rehearsal spaces for dance and theater, music practice rooms, visual arts studios (including ceramics and animation), and a 99-seat black-box theater.

At Jamaica Performing Arts Center (153-10 Jamaica Avenue)—housed in the landmark 1858 First Reformed Dutch Church—we offer a 400-seat, multi-functional performance space, a “sky-box” conference room, and multi-purpose rehearsal and performance spaces.
