Dancing in the Streets

Decidedly Jazz Danceworks is the anchor tenant of Kahanoff Two, providing a community hub for performance creation and dance education.

Calgary, AB

Take a peek

The primary volume is the second floor theatre and lobby which extends toward and into the street offering key views for the one way traffic of 12th Ave SE into the event spaces.

Jazzy spaces

As the facility is most active in the early evening with performances and classes, the transparency and light quality offered at that time of day will magnify the sense of activity.

The street becomes alive with dance

On a very tight site and bounded almost entirely on all edges, these volumes intentionally push toward the street offering multiple and varied views into the studios, theatre and public function rooms.
