Located next to the Summerlin Library, the 35,000 square-foot facility serves as the main academic campus for the non-profit Nevada Ballet Theater. The site and building are both curvilinear in form and employ a wave theme, a metaphor for a dancing figure, that was integrated in different design elements. The south façade features large, wave-like windows that illuminate the dance studios. The lobby features a curved ceiling and a wave pattern on the tile floor. The glazing on the south façade is recessed to allow for sun protection. An axial breezeway connects the entry, courtyard, and lobby areas while separating the two main wings of the building.
