I hope this is the right forum to post this in...

I'm an architecture student, and our current project is to design an interpretive dance center for modern dance. Part of our assignment is to explore what dancers (a.k.a. the client) need in a studio space.

I'm looking for somewhat unconventional ideas about what may be needed or wanted in such a building.

It is to include an auditorium, classrooms and dance studios.

I was wondering, what do you like or appreciate (or dislike) about current studio spaces, and what kind of spaces or features would you like to see integrated into a studio?

Any replies or info would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance :)

Jola
