Where do I park?

The department of Dance is located inside Robinson Center at 1301 Sunnyside Avenue. Robinson Center is conveniently located within walking distance to both a parking garage and a moderately restricted parking lot. If you are visiting the department on the weekend for auditions, the department encourages you to park in lot 90, located just south of Robinson Center.

If you are visiting the department on a weekday during normal business hours, the department encourages that you park in the parking garage located on the southwest corner of Sunnyside Avenue and Naismith Drive. There is a small hourly fee for parking in this garage.

Please pay attention to posted signs regarding lot restrictions. Parking tickets are costly and the Dance department is unable to waive parking fees that are assessed during visits or auditions.

The department makes every effort not to schedule auditions on days where basketball home games are scheduled as parking becomes heavily restricted during these events.

The dance between art and science

Who do you find standing at intersection of art and science? Someone like Natali Diaz-Yepes, who graduated in May with a double major in dance and genetic biology. To prepare for her senior dance recital, Diaz-Yepes navigated lecture halls and dance floors, chemistry and choreography, body and mind.
