Oh, how sweet the space is. Brittany Reese beckons you to come into Sugar Space Studio for the Arts. The industrial warehouse on the west side is "a bakery for arts and events," which is to say that it's a place for community to congregate and for arts organizations to incubate.
Reese founded Sugar Space in 2007 out of a need for a small to mid-sized curated, professional training and showing venue in Salt Lake City.
Since, Sugar Space has been the place to see innovative, multi-disciplinary arts programs that wouldn't have had a home otherwise. Both emerging local and established touring artists have graced its stage.
A Utah native, Reese studied dance at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. She has performed as a professional dancer and taught and choreographed with a variety of companies, which included traveling around the world and living in New York City for 17 years.
Aside from managing Sugar Space, Reese sits on the South Salt Lake Arts & Community Council.
