Space to Move

The sweeping curves of the award-winning Donald and Nancy deLaski Performing Arts Building house the School of Dance and reflect the rhythm and movement that fill the building each day.

Our breathtaking studios will inspire you to move.

The three original sunlit studios with banks of windows along one wall have long been a hallmark of our program. The new deLaski wing is a stunning addition. A dance gallery connects two new studios, each more than 2,800 square feet with 20-foot ceilings and large corner windows, a fully equipped conditioning lab and treatment room, and a student lounge.

Our athletic training room is equipped with reformers, weights, and stretching apparatus. Our full-time trainer has two massage tables to treat dancers, as well as whirlpools and electric stimulators, if needed.

Dancers get ready for a class in one of Mason's spacious studios. Students can take a modern and a ballet technique class each day throughout their four years of study.

You Are Front and Center on Beautiful Stages.

The Mason Dance Company performs in three theaters: the Center for the Arts with a 1,900-seat Concert Hall; the 475-seat Harris Theatre; and the Hylton Performing Arts Center on the Prince William campus, with a performance hall that seats 1,100, and a 275-seat flexible theater.
