ABSTRACT

The physical surroundings that are required when creating or training in any art form is usually more related to the personal needs of the individual artists than to the art form itself. Nevertheless, generally, writers often want a serene atmosphere; painters want special light; musicians want rooms with pleasing acoustics; actors want an open uncluttered space. In contrast, dancers have explicit requirements which must be fulfilled for successful completion of their tasks. Sufficient space, ventilation, and proper flooring are all absolutes. Correct lighting and temperature are highly desirable.
