To promote and support the arts community of the Tampa Bay area, a studio space was recently renovated and made available as a black box theater space for local productions. With optional, provided light and sound equipment and flexible audience seating, the space is available for local businesses, artists and arts organizations to use. Eligible organizations may apply for a box office split arrangement to mitigate productions.
Studio spaces are also available for rent by local businesses, artists and arts organizations for classes and meetings.
All of our students are provided with performing opportunities for these programs through Collective Soles Arts Group. For more information on any of our programs and resources, please contact us.
Collective Soles Arts Group has two pre-professional performance groups; the Collective Soles Youth Ensemble and the Collective Soles Theatre Troupe. CSAG also has a professional dance company; Collective Soles Dance. CSD is the first and only jazz dance company in the Tampa Bay Area, and it consists entirely of professional dancers who have spent their entire lives training for a career in the performing arts. Some of the dancers also teach classes for CSAG, and the company makes guest appearances all over Tampa as well as hosting performances of their own. Collective Soles Dance is in its third season.
All of our classes and rehearsals as well as some of our performances take place at the Jansen Dance Project. Jansen Dance Project (JDP) is the building that hosts the Collective Soles Arts Group's professional training and performance arts facility founded in 2003, offering a comprehensive educational program.
All training is provided at our affiliate training facility; JDP. Founded in 2003, The Dance Training Program provides training for students in ballet, jazz, modern, tap, and hip hop focusing on the technical aspects of each particular discipline. The Musical Theatre Training Program provides training opportunities for those interested in learning acting and vocal technique and applying it in full-scale musical productions. The Moving to Read Program seeks to promote literacy by integrating storytelling, dance and movement.
Founded in 2006, Collective Soles Arts Group originally focused on the promotion of dance in the Tampa community and beyond through performances, lecture demonstrations and outreach workshops. Since then, we’ve expanded to include all areas of the performing arts, including musical theatre, as well as providing an arts-based education enrichment program.
