Interlochens New Breathtaking Dance Center Is Ready for Class [Video]

After months of practicing in a cramped space at home, young dancers have dreamed of training in a spacious, airy studio. And when the facilities are as resplendent as the brand-new dance center at Michigan’s Interlochen Center for the Arts, everyday technique class is to be savored.

The recently renovated and vastly expanded 26,000-square-foot Dance Center at Interlochen is now a world-class facility on par with those of premier conservatories and professional companies. Joseph Morrissey, Interlochen’s director of dance, says a lot of careful thought went into the architecture: “This could not just be a building that dance is going to go into. This is a building that is made for dance.” To build the best facilities for his students, Morrissey sought out Flansburgh Architects, the group behind the beautiful Perles Family Studio at Jacob’s Pillow.
