This two-story, 34,800 square foot dance education and performance facility is located on North Tryon Street. North Carolina Dance Theatre (NCDT) contains four dance studios, a costume shop, administrative offices, meeting spaces, locker rooms and showers, as well as a new 200-seat block box theater. The structure is a combination of tilt-wall precast, structural steel composite floors, and a joist supported roof. The building is distinctive with its three faceted metal panels extending toward the sky. Three of the dance studios have glass curtainwalls offering views of the city.
