Dance school cel­e­brates new stu­dios with open day

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
