UIYB is housed in Halsey Hall, sharing the spacious studios with the University of Iowa Department of Dance. With its marley floors, high ceilings, and abundant natural light, Halsey Hall provides an inspiring and professional dance space steeped in the history of 20th-century American dance. 

Built in 1915 with an addition in the 1940s, this historic space is named after Elizabeth Halsey, chair of the UI department of physical education for women from 1924 to 1955 and a pioneer in establishing sport for women at the collegiate level. 


Halsey Hall is on the corner of Madison and Jefferson Streets. Parking is available in the Iowa Memorial Union Ramp next to Halsey Hall.
