Plans for the Arts Center

Poly Dance, Theater, Music, and the Visual Arts program will achieve next-level excellence in the new Arts Center, designed to provide much-needed space and resources. The capital project will establish the multipurpose Grubman Family Dance Studio, construct a new Lobby Gallery, adjacent to the entrance of the Richard Perry Theatre, for student and professional exhibitions, and build an Instrumental Music Room that nearly doubles the size of the existing Band Room. Moreover, the completed PolyARTS Center will serve as a center for culture, creativity, and enriched partnerships with the Brooklyn arts community.

“A vibrant and contemporary arts education is essential to helping our students succeed as critical thinkers and global citizens.”

“We strive to give students of all levels the opportunity to explore and develop as artists and to be appropriately challenged as they grow.”

— Dan Doughty, Performing Arts Department Chair
“An important aspect of the theater program is that the students get to work side by side and collaborate with theater professionals, and get to experience a high level of theater production whether on stage or behind the scenes.”

— David Higham '07, Performing Arts Faculty, Theater
