Houston Ballet’s new $53 million building, which opens next spring, will be the largest professional dance company facility in the US.
The building will have nine dance studios, a “dance laboratory” space that seats 200 people, an on-site dormitory and support facilities for the company and its school. Designed by architecture firm Gensler, the new Center for Dance will be a sustainable, energy-efficient building. It will allow Houston Ballet’s education and outreach programmes to reach 30,000 students in the Houston area.
