New Studio

Dear Constant Reader,

For bureaucratic reasons to tedious to delve into The Thalia needs to under go major renovations and as with all things bureaucratic it involves much red tape. The upshot is, we haven’t been able to use the space since the end of June and we have no idea when they’ll even get the building permits needed, let alone permission to reopen.

For the past two months we’ve been moving from one rented studio to another to rehearse and discovered there’s a need for studio space in the Boston area. So many places we tried were booked solid! After intense searching, we found a new studio space and signed a lease on Friday!

It’s right in Kenmore Square, spitting distance from the T station and, if there’s no Sox game, there’s a lot of on-street parking.

The space is a former office and is going to need some (that is, A LOT) of work to be exactly what we want. Eventually, there will be two large studios perfect for rehearsals, lessons, photography, meetings, readings, whatever your artistic endeavor. We also have two small offices with their own entrance just right for a small business.

Here’s the space we’re calling Studio A before we did any work:

But a fresh coat of paint makes everything look better!

The next day we added mirrors. They still need to be hung on the wall, but tonight’s Introduction to Burlesque class can see themselves!

And then a few touches to make it feel more like home. Here’s Electrix and Scratch hanging some of our artwork.

Next project is to lay a dance floor! Right now the floor is carpet, which is serviceable, but not ideal. We also want to do something about the unflattering lighting. Eventually we’re going to have to tackle the major renovation in Studio B, which involves thing like taking down walls and putting in a kitchenette.

Follow along as we continue to improve!

  1. It sounds like you might be willing to rent the studio to others sometimes? If that’s true let me know, a teacher of mine might want to.
