BSP, located in the heart of Uptown Kingston, NY, has been home to performers, artists and musicians of all genres and media since its inception over 13 years ago. The building itself was built in the early 1900s and originally served as a vaudeville and movie house for Kingston residents and tourists who came up the Hudson River by ferry. The building has gone through a number of changes, but its historical features and ornaments remain largely intact, including the awe-inspiring proscenium arch which still bears the marking “RKT” (Reade’s Kingston Theatre) at its crest.
Most recently, talent and promotion company OUTPUT AGENCY LTD. (OA), teamed up with building owner Teri Rossin to start integrating the front room, upstairs dance studio, and full theater into one working performance arts complex.
BSP currently boasts the following amazing spaces under its roof…
*A 2,000 sq. foot reception area with full liquor license for events, parties, concerts, and gallery openings.
*A 2,000 sq. foot state of the art 5-layer bamboo floor dance studio offering a wide array of dance programming and classes.
*A 22,000 sq. foot back room which functions part time as a NYS certified Soundstage and also is available for corporate, private and concert events.
