We are thrilled to finally announce the new Ballet Co.Laboratory studios! Our new home will be located in the Riverview Business Plaza at 276 East Lafayette Frontage Road in St Paul. We will have three gorgeous studios with natural light, as well as gender neutral, ADA accessible restrooms and shower. The space will also include a welcoming reception area, lobby with ample seating and dedicated study/work space, changing rooms, staff lounge, and storage space with a costume shop. The building also has free parking, and is accessible by Metro Transit. The build-out of the studio space will start in earnest tomorrow and is scheduled to be completed before second semester classes begin on January 7, 2019. Stay tuned for updates on the build-out and the date of our official unveiling event!
We are delighted to provide an open, safe, and welcoming space for all. The new Ballet Co.Laboratory studios will help us to further execute our mission to create, develop, inspire, and improve the quality of life for current and future generations of dancers here in the Twin Cities.
The raw space
In our search for space we knew we had to find a home with high ceilings, minimal pillars, opportunity for natural light and free and ample parking. Our space has one pillar that we will use to create a wall in between two of our three studios. We will also be installing windows in place of the two garage doors to provide for natural light in every studio!
