The Dance Lab & Jackson Gym

The Dance Lab

Jackson Gym
The Dance program manages two studio spaces for its classes and some events. These also serve extra-curricular dance through a formalized reservation process. The Jackson Dance Lab was renovated during 2006. It is equipped with portable barres, mirrors, marley over dance sub-surface, black curtains 3/4ths around, seating for 100, stage lights, and a concert quality sound system. It accommodates intimate concerts and events produced by the Dance Program. A smaller studio located across the hall is fully outfitted for classes and rehearsals, including marley over a sprung floor. (The Dance Program also produces events in other facilities from time to time.) The Jackson dance spaces are in full use for curricular and approved student groups during the academic year. They are closed in the summer. At the beginning of each semester, student groups are required to complete a space contract that includes the listing of a budget number. New undergraduate dance groups may apply for space when other groups disband or permanently vacate their traditional times. Individuals may occasionally reserve time.
