Shanghai International Dance Center

Add:1650 Hongqiao Rd.





Approved in 2012, the newly built center in Changning District was designed to provide a permanent rehearsal and performance space for local dance groups which have long occupied the area bound by Hongqiao Road, Shuicheng Road and Yan’an Road W.

The 1,080-seat theater is remarkable for its unique design, composed of 2,700 double-curved metal plates and a pillar-less rotating stairway. In addition, each seat is carefully arranged to ensure maximum visibility of the stage.

The rehearsal spaces range in size from 100 to 400 square meters and are equipped with French windows for optimal lighting and ventilation. There are also spring-board floors with different tensions designed to prevent injury.
