Diamond School of Dance broke ground Nov. 6 on a new dance instruction facility scheduled to open next August. The new digs will house four dance studios with room to expand to seven over time.

Premier Dancewear LLC and Diamond Collective Photography will also reside in the space. In order to serve its mission to create well-rounded dancers, the building will also feature a new student lounge and homework bar where dancers can work on academic efforts between classes.

With professional sound systems, sprung dance floors, viewing windows, and other technical improvements, Diamond School of Dance predicts the new facility will draw new top-notch faculty and improved opportunity for local dancers.
