Graduate Dance Center

Graduate Dance CenterGraduate students and faculty members from Dance at Illinois and the School of Architecture collaborated to design and build our newest work center. Begun from the concept of sustainable rehabilitation, the Graduate Dance Center includes reclaimed basketball flooring from the Activities and Recreation Center and barn wood donated from alumni. Its integrated spaces feature a dance studio with sprung floors, a media area, a lounge, computer stations, an LED system, and sculptural pieces that play against the Midwestern light. Our long-term goal is to renovate the entire building and obtain LEED certification.
