A public pavilion for a moment of escape

Dance is the ultimate form of escapism; moving your body, eyes closed, feeling the music. The washroom, where you escape from an awkward conversation, take a break to check your phone at work, go to call your friend during a bad date. How do this action and space relate? What does it mean to combine this action, dance with the typology of the public washroom? Could creating dance pavilions that mimic the typology of the public washroom provide an escape from everyday life? Can the escapism of dance be embraced, and be provided as a public amenity?

The DC, Dance Closet, mimics the public washroom, providing anyone with a brief moment to shake their sillies out, dance like nobody is watching, or vertically express a horizontal desire; just select a playlist, set a time, choose an atmosphere, and move to the music.
