The performance hall of Sõltumatu Tantsu Lava was constructed keeping in mind the creative needs of dance artists (open floor area of 11×14 meters, soft wooden parquet floor, clean and warm space, daylight possibilities, modern hygiene conditions, stage equipment and audience area). We are located in the Vaba Lava theater center building, entrance from the backside of the house.
