Dance fan and philanthropist Caroline Amplatz has donated $3 million to help the Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts rehab its Arts & Education Wing, reports the Star Tribune.

The eight-story building, on the corner of Hennepin Avenue and 6th Street in downtown Minneapolis, is home to 28 nonprofit arts groups, including James Sewell Ballet, Zenon Dance Company, Illusion Theater, and two dance schools.

Originally opened in 1888 as a Masonic Temple, the building was relaunched as Hennepin Center for the Arts in the 1970s and became part of Cowles Center in 2011.
