“Hubbard Street is an amazing place for young artists to learn and grow. The energy in the building is positive, open, welcoming and contagious. Hubbard Street is a dance community that is about lifting each other up, even on the hard days. I feel so fortunate to have been able to work, learn, and grow here this summer.”
