Troy Dance Lab

Troy Dance Lab

The Troy Dance Lab is the larger of the two dance studios housed in the Lang Performing Arts Center. It is a high-ceiling studio with sprung wood floors and 15 foot windows overlooking the beautiful Crum Woods. It is used on a daily basis for technique classes including Modern, African, Kathak, and Contact dance.

The Troy Dance Lab is also equipped and used three or four times a semester as an informal performance space by students, faculty and guest artists for audiences of up to 150. During the summer, this space is used by members of the Swarthmore Project who return during the academic year to perform their work in the Troy Dance Lab or Pearson Hall Theater.The Troy Dance Lab is available as a student and faculty rehearsal space when classes are not in session. The student groups Terpsichore and Rhythm N' Motion make regular use of this space.

The Troy Dance Lab was generously donated by the Troy family, several of whom are alumni of the college.
