Space is the first thing you need to create your art and hone your craft as a dancer, and Goucher has plenty of it. Three wide-open dance studios and two additional studio spaces provide more than ample room for daily classes in technique, rehearsals, and composition classes.
We are especially proud of our new Harriet Sauber Eisner '43 Dance Studio, which boasts a resilient permanent Harlequin sprung floor system and a state of the art sound and projection system. Named after an alumna from the Class of 1943, the 2,400-square-foot Harriet Sauber Eisner Dance Studio also boasts Alva barres, a costume storage area, a piano, and aerial dance equipment. Throughout her 60-year career-at Goucher College, in Baltimore public schools, and in her own dance studios, Ms. Eisner trained thousands of dancers and we are extremely grateful for her contributions.
Our fall and spring main-stage performances are held in Kraushaar Auditorium, a 1,000-seat theater. For smaller performances we have the Todd Dance Studio Theater, seating 125.
The Sports and Recreation Center, adjacent to the studios, rounds out the facilities with an indoor pool, weight room, aerobic dance studio, sauna, and racquetball courts.
The Schon Dancer Wellness Lab also provides dancers with space and equipment to stretch and strengthen between classes.
