BAX Spaces

The BAX building at 421 5th Avenue in Park Slope houses four beautiful, well-equipped, multi-purpose studios. We rent our spaces for dance, theater, and performance rehearsals, classes or workshops, meetings, auditions, readings, informal showings, performances, special events, and more.

BAX is roughly one (1) avenue block and 1.5 street blocks away from the 9th Street/4th Avenue F/G/Q/R Subway Station. The building was the original location of Brooklyn Women’s Martial Arts, and is designated as one of NYC’s LGBT Historic Sites!

BAX is on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the building, accessible by stairs with no lift or elevator. However, we are committed to accessibility and make every effort to help folks with mobility challenges reach our space. We can also make a variety of accommodations for needs related to neurodiversity, visual impairment, hearing impairment, and other disabilities. If you have a specific request or need, please reach out to us at info@bax.org.

Amenities

Our well-maintained studio spaces include a Bluetooth-compatible sound system, free WIFI, natural and fluorescent lighting, A/C and heat, an Air Filter, and extra cleaning supplies such as disinfectant wipes and hand sanitizer. Renters can access non-gendered bathrooms and filtered cold/hot water fountains on both floors; we have a dressing room on the 2nd floor.

Studios B and C have mirrors. Portable barres, tables, flooring alternatives, and additional chairs are available upon request. Video projector and theatrical lighting (Studio D only) are available for an additional cost; don’t hesitate to contact Rodd Denson, Operations Manager, at rodd@bax.org.
