Studios and Multi-Purpose Rehearsal Space

The fourth floor lounge in Lincoln Hall is a ventilated mixed use art studio, supplied with easels, drafting tables, storage, light stands, and natural lighting.

Dancers and theater students will find that the main floor is equipped with special flooring, mirrors, mats, theater “props,” and a portable dance bar for all rehearsal needs.

An upright piano is also located in the main lobby for your use. Note that it is not located in a soundproof area, so scheduling should be coordinated with others using the rehearsal space.
