This is Nathan and Suzannah and our studio-to-be. We bought our house in the Fall of 2013 and this studio came with the property and we have ever since dreamed of turning it into a movement/dance/music studio. Our vision includes hosting dances, creating a space for sharing and teaching songs, and providing a space that may be used by others so that they may offer classes and workshops as well.
The studio needs some renovations to make all this possible: a new floor to dance on (it is currently a concrete slab), a newly shingled roof as the old one is at the end of its designed life, and new drywall and light fixtures for the new lofted ceiling.
Fortunately, Nathan has some carpentry experience and can do a lot of the labor himself (with Suzannah's help!), and the bulk of these funds will go to the materials needed. We have been saving for this project, and just need a little more than we have to make it a truly wonderful space.
We are currently working on this project and would love to been completed by the early fall, and our hope is to gather/receive the funds as soon as possible.
We are so excited to create a space where people in our community can express themselves together through music and dance. We believe that coming together in these ways is one of the best ways to help build and maintain a vibrant and supportive community and it's what we love doing!
We are so grateful to have such a supportive and loving community to help us fulfill this vision and thank each and every one of you for helping us!
