The award-winning Dance Building, designed by Gunner Birkerts, is the first facility in the United States to be constructed solely for the study and performance of dance. The 10 fully equipped studios, the saunas, and the Dance Theatre Lab provide students with space, light, and inspiration. Numerous student dance concerts take place every semester in the Dance Theatre Lab.

In addition to the Dance Building on campus, there are the world renowned Performing Arts Center and the Neuberger Museum of Art, which offer additional opportunities for dance students. The Purchase Dance Company performs each semester in theatres in The Performing Arts Center. Students also experience the best of international dance companies that perform there, and their education is enhanced by exhibitions and performances at the Neuberger Museum of Art. For an education in the performing arts, Purchase College and the Conservatory of Dance offer some of the very best facilities available anywhere in the world.
