At the beginning of January 2017, Spark signed a lease on our first space. We are grateful to the generosity of Becky's Academy of Dance, Katy Visual and Performing Arts, Koenig School of Dance, Cypress Elite Dance, St. Sava Orthodox Church, Fellowship of Champions Church, and Texas Repertory Theatre for sharing their facilities with us and enabling us to grow enough to get a space of our own!
After two years of being a traveling circus, we were elated to say the least! Then came the daunting task of renovating! With blood, sweat, and volunteers, the staff at Spark has been working tirelessly to renovate the front end of our studio, complete with a large lobby and student area, two dance rooms, an art room, two bathrooms, and two private music rooms. Our goal to have our studio open by February 6th was met loosely with a few minor projects remaining.
After completion of our first effort, the staff of Spark and our mighty volunteers went into the renovation of the back side of our space (our eventual in house theater) feeling a bit overwhelmed and exhausted.
Enter the heroes of our story . . .
Enjoy some pics from this week!
Below are a few more pics of the first phase of our renovation.
