UCLA Glorya Kaufman Hall
Los Angeles, California, USA
An extensive renovation provided new flexible performance and rehearsal spaces, multi-media laboratories, offices, and classrooms for UCLA. The Glorya Kaufman Dance Theater was redesigned into a three-dimensional, multiform performance and teaching space. The Amber Dance Studio now features telescopic seating risers that can be cleared quickly to create a flat floor rehearsal space. In addition to the renovated spaces, a new outdoor dance pavilion has an enclosed pavilion space for intimate performances. For larger events, the front glass wall of the space opens up to a grass courtyard, allowing the pavilion to serve as the stage and the grass courtyard acts as an open-air audience area. With these versatile facilities, UCLA has cemented its reputation as one of the premier educational dance institutions in the country.
