New Construction
Inspire Entertainment, the company that owns the lot next door, has begun construction on a dance studio. Construction is scheduled to continue until August. We will be sure to continue to offer details as they become available. Please remember that we do not recommend dropping off in the parking lot near the construction site. While this has always been the case, for your child/ren’s safety it is particularly important while construction is underway. If you are able to find a parking spot, you are welcome to park and walk your child to the crosswalk, but our first recommendation is to use our drop-off line.
