Pieter Performance Space is an open platform for the LA dance community to exchange resources and information with each other and the broader dance world
Pieter is a non-profit organization that provides a space for dancers to create a nurturing society. Based on holistic support for all bodies, an open exchange of ideas and a reciprocity of generosity, Pieter is a place to be comfortable in the body-mind-spirit. Through workshops, classes, public performances and residencies, dancers work and play together in a non-hierarchical environment. Ideas are embodied, exchanged and transformed rather than owned. There is a belief in abundance and goodness. There is a belief that everyone has something to give. At Pieter, brave dancing bodies are at home.

Pieter presents dance and other interdisciplinary performance work by local, national and international artists.


With rotating guest artists, as well as semi-regular classes.


The Pieter’s Dancemakers Grant aims to subvert the discriminatory hierarchical pyramid model of dance in America.


For the first time since closing the studio where Pieter was founded over a decade ago and moving all of our classes, workshops and events online, our partnership with The Box will host a year of new, in-person programming.

Pieter is funded in part by the California Arts Council, the Department of Cultural Affairs, IMTour, the Center for Cultural Innovation, the Los Angeles Creative Economic Development Fund, The Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, the LA Arts Recovery Fund and the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission.
