Together with the Northside Public School system, we are offering an elective studio-based course at the high school level that intergrates art as a way of understanding movement in dance. Students develop a series of projects where they interpret different dance techniques and translate them into a form of fine art. Performaces and gallery exhibitions will be required throughout the course. Our program offers students a unique way of looking at movement in an abstract way, and allows for further development of high-level thinking creatively. Partnering with University of Cincinnati CCM and DAAP, students from the University will be offered volunteer service hours for working and teaching at the center. Additionally, internship and apprenticeship opportunities will be available for those pursuing a higher-level degree in the arts.

midterm review


Located in the heart of Northside, Fosture offers a facility complete with art and dance studios as well as a large performance space. The building’s design was derived from the idea of movement in static objects. Inspired by counterbalance in dance, the upper level studios appear to float on top of a translucent performance space below whilst being anchored by necessary programmatic spaces. The connection between the observer and the observed is enhanced through level changes as well as varying opacities of partitions. Each dance studio is paired with an art studio featuring a custom glass wall where the two spaces meet. Lightwells allow natural light to flood the space, while punched openings provide views for the students.
