New Dance Studio Opens on West Girard
You may have noticed some new tenants have moved into the 2511 West Girard Avenue building recently. In addition to Steelworks Strength Systems' new location on the bottom floor, a brand new dance studio has moved into the top floor. Sound Space boasts that they have the "best floors in town" - and the views from their studio are gorgeous, too. Be sure to stop in and say hello to our new neighbor, Pam, on the east end of West Girard! And check out this piece about Sound Space in Spirit News:
"West Girard Avenue in Brewerytown has quickly developed into one of the more eclectic corridors in Philadelphia. A short walk down the avenue will take you past a brewery, record store, café, hair salon and a collection of eateries. As of March 3rd, we can add a dance studio to that ever-growing list.
When Pam Hetherington, owner of Sound Space Dance Studio, first looked at the second floor of a warehouse at 25th Street and Girard Avenue as a potential home for her new dance studio, there was a lot of work to be done. The windows were open to the elements and had vines growing through them, the walls were exposed grey brick and perhaps most important to having a dance studio, there was no floor. Now the studio, complete with working floor, is open for lessons in percussive dance in such styles as tap, flamenco, lindy hop, African, and classical Indian. “There’s no other wood floor in the city like this,” Hetherington said."
