Located in the tranquility of the open countryside, Kaatsbaan Cultural Park is a 153-acre artist sanctuary located on New York’s Hudson River in the charming village of Tivoli. As an incubator of creativity and presenter for world-class artists in dance, theater, music, film, poetry, culinary and visual arts, Kaatsbaan provides artists with extraordinary studios, an indoor theater, two outdoor stages, and housing that includes a resident Dancers’ Inn and Artist Gatehouse.
The mission of Kaatsbaan Cultural Park is to provide an extraordinary environment for cultural innovation and excellence with two annual outdoor festivals, year-round education programs, and creative residencies for artists at all stages of their professional careers. As both an incubator for creativity and presenter for diverse world-class artists in dance, theater, music, film, poetry, culinary, media, and visual arts, Kaatsbaan provides artists with state-of-the-art dance studios, accommodations, an indoor theater, and two outdoor stages. Sitting on 153 Hudson River-adjacent acres, Kaatsbaan is free of urban facilities’ space and time constraints, allowing for exciting levels of artistic exploration, creative action, and achievement – just two hours north of New York City.
