PHYSICAL STRUCTURE OF THE DANCE SCHOOL

The UFBA Dance School is located next to the main entrance of the Ondina Campus, in Salvador. With a total area of ​​7,200m², its architecture excels in spacious, well ventilated spaces, with natural lighting which dialogues with the surrounding vegetation of the Atlantic Forest of the Campus.

Its building on Campus Ondina was inaugurated in 1992 with an initial area of ​​7,200m², spread over two floors. In 2020, its physical structure was expanded. The new area has three floors connected by stairs, panoramic elevator and accessibility ramp, measuring approximately 4,000 m².
