Monsignor King Hall Brooklyn - St. Thomas Aquinas Sports
Scene where Tony and Maria meet each other at the dance.
Scene was shot "We had so many dancers to fill the space and equipment, and we needed a stage for the band, and proper entrances for the Sharks to come into the scene because the Sharks entrance into the gym is a big event. Most of the sites we saw were too small and didn’t work,” Production Designer Adam Stockhausen told TimeOut magazine. Stockhausen: The 'Dance at the Gym' was probably the largest number we tackled. With more than sixty dancers and over 150 extras, so many people, complicated choreography and a lot of moving parts, it took time to capture."
