    Hi,
    We are opening a new performing arts facility this coming August, and the upper school theatre classroom needs a set of BLACK REHEARSAL BLOCKS.  I am looking for recommendations:  where can we purchase these?  Some, it seems, are quite expensive; we are looking for solid quality at a reasonable price.
    Thanks to all for your help!
    Best,

    Check out Flipforms from Wenger. I had them this school year and they worked out great for a lot of different activities.

    The easiest and cheapest is to simnply build them yourselves....
    With easy mesurements, it's quick and simple. If you have no tech people, enlist the aid of your shop teacher...
    we've built probably 15 of them, and we use all the time in various configurations. Good luck, and save your money.
