Helgeson Dance Studio

Named in honor of the late Arlene Helgeson, a longtime friend of the college and performing arts, the dance studio and rehearsal space highlights the growing dance program at CSB/SJU and creates wonderful partnership opportunities between the schools and the national dance companies. As a fine arts laboratory space, the studio is used primarily for dance and theater classes and rehearsals. Visiting dance artists also conduct master classes in the studio for students and the community.
