Check out what SimGuruCopeland has to say about building the Skylight Studio for Performing Arts! This all-new venue will be available on The Sims 3 Store on June 20, 2013. Don’t forget to follow SimGuruCopeland on Twitter for more witty comments about the things he’s building for The Sims 3.
 
Hi gang.
 
Ever since we released the Stone’s Throw Greenhouse, we’ve had a number of requests from players asking for more glass roof pieces. We’ve also had a number of suggestions for the return of ballet dancing, so we combined both ideas into the Skylight Studio for the Performing Arts!

This venue includes the Light as a Feather Dance Barre that gives your Sim the ability to work out and learn a brand new Dance Skill! Whether your Sim’s an elegant swan or a bumbling goose, let them express themself with the new ballet dance. Even children can learn this exciting new dance. When they are ready to perform, move them over to the Stiff as a Board Dance Floor to strut their stuff! The new dance floor has a ton of dance floor interactions like, Ballet, the Smustle, the Mascot Dance, and even the Chicken Dance!

And when your Sim gets sweaty from getting their groove on, they can check out the new It’s Not Gross Public Shower Station!

But what I’m REALLY excited about are the eight new Sharper Edge Skylight glass roof sculptures and the matching Sharper Edge window! These are all combine for maximum customizability. Want to build a glass pyramid? Done. Glass gazebo? Also done. Want to extend your Greenhouse? Yeah, you can do that too. The sky (light) is the limit with these cool new items!

As an additional bonus, this Thursday when we release this venue I’ll also upload my latest tinkering up to the exchange for you to play with.
