Fidget is open for rentals! At this time, we envision the Fidget Space being used for:

  • Holding a rehearsal (For groups of 10 or fewer. Be in contact if your group exceeds this).
  • Taking or teaching an online class.
  • Holding a book club meeting.
  • Engaging in personal movement practice.
  • Creative brainstorming, script writing workshops, etc.
  • Producing a small event (If you’re interested in holding a public event, please get in contact with us. While we’re open to this possibility, we would like to be in discussion about it first).
  • We invite you to add to this list and propose your ideas: we’re excited to listen and imagine more ways to use the Fidget Space.
