Dance Studio Request

Varsity Gym Dance Studios

The Department of Theatre and Dance manages four dance studios in the Varsity Gym building. The primary use of these studios is for academic and co-curricular instruction by the Department of Theatre and Dance, though some use by outside organizations and programs is possible, depending on the university's schedule.
