    /24-7PressRelease/ - NEW YORK, NY, January 21, 2006 — NYC Performing Arts Spaces is the new name of nonprofit organization Exploring the Metropolis, Inc. The organization's focus on filling the New York City space needs of performers in dance, music and theatre is more accurately reflected in its new name. Its redesigned website is available at www.nycPASpaces.org.

NYC Performing Arts Spaces' websites provide detailed information about hundreds of rentable performance, rehearsal and audition spaces suited for the performing arts. Dancers and musicians can use the NYC Performing Arts Spaces' websites to locate the spaces that best meet their budgetary and artistic needs, saving them valuable time and money. In addition, facilities can generate needed income by publicizing their available spaces on the websites.

Its two existing websites have changed their names to NYC Music Spaces (www.nycMusicSpaces.org) and NYC Dance Spaces (www.nycDanceSpaces.org). Its third website, NYC Theatre Spaces, serving the space needs of the theatre and literary communities, will debut in 2006.
