Conversion of Dance Studios Postponed Until Fall 2015

Monday, November 17, 2014

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- Dance students celebrated Thursday upon notification that the conversion of the dance studio in the Fine Arts Building, Room 203, would be postponed until the fall 2015 semester.

Daniel Bernardi, interim dean of the College of Liberal & Creative Arts, informed the program in an e-mail to faculty and students that the College would hold off on its plans to convert the studio into a museum. Bernardi decided to postpone the studio to museum conversion after taking into consideration students concerns about uneven floors and low temperatures in the theatre.

“In follow-up meetings with all dance faculty it became quite clear that McKenna was not going to work,” Bernardi said. “Student safety is first. It was an easy decision to make, supported by both the President and provost. We can wait a semester to turn FA 203 into the University Museum.”
