MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Fans of dance are celebrating the grand opening of The Cowles Center for Dance and the Performing Arts in downtown Minneapolis this weekend.

Gala performances for Friday and Saturday nights were sold out. But the public can get a look at the complex on Hennepin Avenue at a free Community Day Sunday from 11 a.m.-5 p.m.

Visitors can check out the newly refurbished, 500-seat Goodale Theater; the historic Hennepin Center for the Arts; the Target Education Studio; and the U.S. Bank atrium.

Performances will be held all day in The Goodale Theater. That’s the former Shubert Theater that was moved a block and a half in 1999.

The Cowles Center opens its inaugural season Sept. 23 with the world premiere of Ragamala Dance’s “Sacred Earth.”
