  • The Pennsylvania Ballet’s rehearsal studios and dance school are currently housed in an existing facility on North Broad Street, while their administrative offices are located on South Broad Street. Varenhorst was asked by the Ballet to design modifications to the existing building plus a brand-new addition to house more and larger dance studios (one of which doubles as a full performance theater with retractable audience seating), changing rooms, professional dancer’s lounge and dressing rooms, a cafe, and administrative offices.  The new design will make effective use of natural light without compromising the focused intensity of rehearsal and teaching.  Public spaces around the studios at ground level provide generous opportunities for social mingling and relaxation, event-hosting, and public engagement.
