Decidedly Jazz Danceworks in partnership with the Kahanoff Centre purpose build the first 6 story's of the the 11 story addition. The project provides four floors of state of the art Performing Arts Academy for DJD. These floors are fully glazed to provide views to the activities of the Dance Centre. The view will change according to the activities scheduled at the Academy and in the community spaces on the ground floor. These fully glazed spaces are designed to act as “living billboards” or “light boxes” to display and celebrate the activities at DJD. The street level pedestrian zone is enhanced and activated with a colourful internally lit entry portal marking the front entrance to the Performing Arts Academy.
