Elon’s Performing Arts department is housed in the Center for the Arts, a 75,000-square-foot facility specifically designed for teaching and performance.

The centerpiece stage is McCrary Theatre, a large fully equipped theatre and concert hall.

The 125-seat Yeager Recital Hall offers a more intimate setting along with digital recording capabilities.

The center’s 100-seat Black Box Theatre can be configured to any arrangement from proscenium to arena.

Behind the scenes, the Center for the Arts includes modular practice rooms and studios, acting studio, rehearsal rooms, a complete scenery shop and costume shop, computer labs, classrooms and Steinway concert grand pianos.

Dance Studio

Three new spacious dance/rehearsal studios with mirrored walls and state-of-the-art sound equipment provide additional space for rehearsal and instruction.
