Actors’ Equity HQ and Audition Center

Actors’ Equity HQ and Audition Center

Located in the heart of NYC’s Broadway Theater District, the Actors’ Equity Association’s New York Audition Center and National Headquarters houses both executive and administrative offices for the 100 year-old organization. Two new state-of-the-art dance and voice studios, warm up areas, and dressing rooms were built to create a comfortable and accommodating environment for the daily auditions.


  • 20,000 square feet
  • $6 million
  • Dance and voice studios
  • National headquarters office space


New dance and voice studios required the creation of sound isolated rooms with sprung floors and high ceilings within the original 1925 structure. The roof of the existing structure was raised 6 feet to accommodate the 12 feet of required clearance in the dance studios. Warm up areas feature sprung floors, ballet barres, and full length mirrors.
