Move Studios was originally the historic Union Ice Factory, built in 1930 and is now the Monterey Peninsula’s newest state-of-the-art dance and movement center, arts and cultural hub, and event venue.

  • Downtown location with large, secure, private parking lot

  • 2 Buildings – indoor capacity of 300 people

  • Large voluminous spaces, abundant natural light

  • State-of-the-art sound system

MOVE STUDIOS IS LOCATED IN DOWNTOWN MONTEREY, one block from the beach between the Conference Center and Lake El Estero.  We underwent a major renovation to revive the buildings. We have preserved some of the interesting elements of the past and blended the industrial style with modern elegance and technology. The result is voluminous spaces with beautiful natural light, a cutting edge sound system, and an urban chic design.
