New hub for arts coming to downtown Jersey City
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A Jersey City-based dance company and school says it is developing a 14,200-sq. foot facility in the downtown area of the city.
Nimbus Dance Works says its new arts center will feature a 150-seat black box theater, studio and rehearsal space for the dance company and school, and company administrative offices. The Jersey Journal reports the facility is expected to open in December 2019 and will reside on the ground floors of the building with apartments above it.
The project will also establish a partnership between Nimbus and Saint Peter’s University, through which new initiatives in delivering arts education will be explored. Pro Arts Jersey City, a professional membership community dedicated to advancing and promoting artists, will serve as the resident visual arts organization at the new facility.
