Del Valle High School unveiled their new 19,239 square foot Fine Arts Addition at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 16, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The new Fine Arts Addition features three major spaces that include a dance studio, band rehearsal hall and a common space area. The dance floor will include a new state-of-the-art hybrid system competition-style sprung floor designed with two mirrored walls, dance barres and a built-in sound system.
“Del Valle is excited about our high tech, professional quality fine arts studio space that will enable our students and programs to continue on their path of excellence,” Fine Arts Coordinator Jenny Parry said. “The fine arts program in Del Valle ISD is exceptional, and our students have a great facility for years to come.”
The main dance studio features an optional accordion divider, high-efficiency big fans, wall mounted surface tablets and integrated wireless microphones for the instructors. All of these features eliminate the need for furniture and equipment on the floor, maximizing the floor space for the dancers.
The band rehearsal space includes ceiling mounted microphones and speaker system that connect to a portable recording system.
