The rear side circular block houses the School of Dance. It has an aesthetically designed double height stage, with an open court at the centre to seat the audience.

The flooring of the building is a combination of granite and ceramic tile. The interior surface and the ceiling are painted with oil bound washable distemper. The exterior surface is painted with waterproof cement paint in traditional colours.
