Dance school celebrates new studios with open day
A DANCE school has hosted an open day at its studios.
Sylk Dance Academy opened in 2009 and has been running from various locations in Macclesfield.
But in January the team opened their own ‘Sylk Studios’ on Union Street.
Parents and supporters have helped to fund the studios.
Manager Amy Mayers and her team have now hosted an open day. Deputy Mayor Adam Schofield cut the ribbon and judged a dance competition.
The day involved more fundraising activities including tombolas, cake sales and dance battles.
Amy said: “Despite opening the studio doors in January, the space wasn’t 100 per cent finished and there was still lots of work to be done.
“Parents, children and friends have supported us in raising money to keep adding to the studios and we’ve been able to get more equipment to support our students and hire out to other community groups.
“There will always be further to go but we decided that it was important to celebrate how far we had come by having an official open day.
“It was an amazing event and I was overwhelmed with the support we had.”
