On July 1st, 2017, we purchased an established Jazz, Tap, and Ballet studio in Seven Hills, OH. In that decision, we also acquired larger and additional space at the Seven Hills studio to house our growing ballroom studio in Lakewood, Ohio.
Lakewood has been a nice place to start our "Rhythm & Grace" brand, however, it was impossible to grow our square footage in our present location and frankly, the building we were in, being over 100 years old, had a few issues that made it easier to move. Additionally, we had an established clientele prior to opening our Lakewood location some years ago, so they would be able to easily move to a more centralized location, which is what we decided Seven Hills was.
On September 1st, 2017, we will be closing our Lakewood location to move to the larger Seven Hills space. There we have over 3000 square feet of space split out over 4 dance floors. Two of those floors will be dedicated to ballroom, Latin, social and wedding dance lessons. The remaining two will continue as jazz, tap, ballet, etc. spaces. Basically, our studio has grown 200% with the new spaces.
