Dance Facilities

The department of dance is housed in Lilly Hall, the home of the Jordan College of the Arts. The dance program operates in five state-of-the-art dance studios featuring sprung floors, audio/video equipment, pianos, mirrors, barres and observation windows. Technique classes are accompanied by musicians at the direction of the professor.

The largest dance studio serves the department as both a teaching space and an informal performance venue. The studio is rigged with lighting equipment, theatrical soft goods and informal audience seating. The space serves as a theatrical laboratory for students to develop technical production skills such as lighting design for dance. Furthermore, this studio theatre showcases students' creative voices through regular showings of their choreography.

The Conditioning Room offers students the opportunity to cross-train and fine tune their physical instrument outside of the studio and rehearsal. Students use the Reformer and the Elliptical as no-impact training to stretch, strengthen and reinforce their core strength. The department provides an athletic trainer who consults with students and faculty regarding progressive fitness goals, injury prevention and rehabilitation should an injury occur.
