The Akropoditi Dance and Performing Arts Centre is housed in two recently renovated buildings, which built in 1850 and originally operated as a tannery.
The first one is 163 sq.m. and it is used as a Dance Course Studio. The space consists of a dance studio with a wooden floor, a reception area, changing rooms and toilets.
The second building is 180 sq.m. and it consists of 2 levels. The first level serves as a stage for performances, classes and workshops, and as a room for projections, equipped with one projector, projections screen and audio and lighting equipment. There is also a dressing room, a kitchen, a shower and a toilet. In the upper level, there is a library loft, two desks equipped with laptops and two beds. The space is used exclusively by guests within the frame of the Artistic Residency program. The two levels are connected by an internal staircase.
