The dance center reflects a scene that ballet dancers and modern dancers perform simultaneously on the same stage. The contrast makes the building unique. In the site, existing historic building facades are kept in order to preserve the memory of Columbia College in the neighborhood. The new building indicates what dance has been transforming to free and expressive modern dance. In short, the building is an experience of the past, present and future. The project was led by Thomas J. McLeish.
