It is a school for 20 talanted balerinas with an accomodation for their teacher, czech prima balerina Adela Pollertova. Simple shape outside hides very complicated constuction inside the building. Main space, 25 m2 big, is abso-

lutely empty. All equipment such as curtains, piano, mirrors, ballet bars, storages and even auditorium are lifted. Because of itl main space can be transformed from dance room, to rehearsal space, then to the auditorium or even to the concert hall. Curtain system also used to divide big space to smaller rooms.

Folding wooden facade moves like a balerina and can open or hide all what happen in the ischool, to the people outside.
