New DJD dance CENTRE – Now open
Our new $26 million dance centre is now open and we couldn’t be more excited! The new DJD Dance Centre provides an intersection where highly trained professional jazz experts, people taking dance classes, other arts groups, and audience members all share the same space as they experience the joy of dance and music. The centre has been designed to inspire creativity for the users within and to be a source of creative energy for the district. The new dance centre includes 7 dance studios with high ceilings, natural light, sprung floors, spacious change rooms, a students’ lounge, and access to parking. One of the studios transforms into a 230-seat theatre space for performances by DJD and others.
On April 27, 2016 members of Calgary’s media were taken on a tour of the almost-finished DJD Dance Centre. Here’s what a few of them had to say:
At this point in time, more than 90% of the $26 million goal has been raised and we thank our many supporters including the City of Calgary, the Government of Alberta, the Government of Canada Department of Canadian Heritage, The Kahanoff Foundation, The Calgary Foundation, the Suncor Energy Foundation and many individual donors. But we aren’t there yet.
