Construction activities are well underway for the Cleo Parker Robinson Center for the Healing Arts. This map indicates, in BLUE, how to walk around and into our facility during construction. Our main entrance (South side of the building) has a new wheelchair staircase lift under construction (the right set of front doors). This should be completed by the end of June or sooner. During wheelchair lift construction, our temporary ADA access to the building is through the CPRD Academy entrance on the north side of the building. Through those doors, use the Annex elevator to the First Floor; this gets you into the Stage Left CPRD Theatre entrance.

Please contact Rhetta Shead if you have any questions or access issues at 303.295.1759 x14. Thank you for supporting Cleo Parker Robinson Dance and our exciting expansion, and look for more updates! #inspiringmovement
