Robert W. Cole Studio
The Robert W. Cole Studio is a column-free studio, fully-equipped with a triple-basketweave sprung sub floor, covered with a Marley-type PVC dance floor, portable and fixed ballet barres, an upright piano, and sound/video playback system. It is bright with natural light, plus central heat and air-conditioning.
The Robert W. Cole Studio is located on the 4th floor of the Mark Morris Dance Center and is in close proximity to locker rooms, restrooms, a lounge, and a terrace.

With support from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, we recently replaced the floors in three of the Dance Center’s original studios—the James and Martha Duffy Performance Space and the Robert W. Cole and Independence Community Foundation Studios. The new flooring (Harlequin Cascade™) was chosen because it is well-suited to a range of dance styles, including percussive forms like tap. The floors are seamless and have a high-quality matte finish which provides just the right amount of grip.
