Studio Rentals

Motion Pacific is more than a dance studio. Whether you want to host a class, a party, a workshop, a photoshoot, or a full-scale, ticketed production, Motion Pacific is your venue. 

Our downstairs studio transforms into a 100-seat, black or white-box theater with multiple seating, staging, and lighting configurations. The adjacent lobby serves as a reception space and box office. Our upstairs studio is a more intimate space, perfect as a green room for productions, or for meetings and rehearsals. Both studios have a sprung, multi-use Marley floor. All downstairs spaces are ADA accessible and our production programming offers various levels of staffing and curatorial support. We have a small parking lot and street parking adjacent to our location in downtown Santa Cruz.

Competitive rental rates for productions are made in conversation with our rental coordinator and director. Please email to begin that conversation.
