What is The MAR?

A Performing Arts Studio and Incubator for creators, dancers, actors, musicians, and more. It’s a place for rehearsing, for workshopping, for recording, for live streaming, for performing, and for all kinds of creative collaboration. It’s the place to move from student to professional. A place for small businesses to call home while they build the way to their forever home. A place that we can all make mistakes, grow, learn, together!

The MAR is a space that anyone can book for whatever they need!
