New York City Designated LandmarkConstructed in 1916 and designed by architects George A. & Henry Boehm, this building was built for the Louis H. Champ Normal School of Dancing. The asymmetrical facade of this five-storey structure has motifs inspired by the Italian Renaissance and mannerist styles. Distinctive with its tan-gray colored brick laid in diamond pattern and with its notable polychrome terra cotta adorned with classical and theatrical references, the facade ends in a colonnaded loggia with overhanging copper cornice.
