Update on Bankruptcy and Closure as of Friday, September 13 @ 3:00pm
Dear DNA Community,
On Thursday we reached an agreement with our landlord, Fram Realty, that allows DNA to remain at its current location through mid-October, after which DNA has agreed to leave 280 Broadway. However, Fram Realty has agreed, in good faith, to continue to listen to any viable proposals DNA presents to it. Our
agreement is being documented and submitted to the Bankruptcy Court for approval.
Classes and rentals will be running through October 13.
Know that we continue to work on a solution to support the DNA teachers, students, artist, audiences, etc.; but as of yet, we have not been able to secure a partner or find another solution that would allow us to meet DNA’s business responsibilities and remain at 280 Broadway.
The DNA Community is more than a 280 Broadway space; it exists regardless of where we work, dance, teach, create, and perform. For our part, we will help keep the lines of communication open between teachers, students, artists, and community supporters while looking for ways to keep our programs alive.
In the meantime, please come take class and rehearse!
With great respect and awe,
Catherine A. Peila
