A premier 299-seat dance and performance theater

UCLA's Glorya Kaufman Dance Theater is one of Southern California's premiere dance and performance venues, featuring state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and one of the most beautiful and versatile contemporary performing arts stages in Los Angeles. The Italian Romanesque-style building, built in 1932, was renovated in 2005 under the single gift from Los Angeles philanthropist and arts patron Glorya Kaufman. World-renowned director Peter Sellars describes the 299-seat theater as “soundstage meets Shinto shrine."
