New dance studio to open in SLO

slinn@thetribunenews.comOctober 29, 2013 

Local dance company Ballet Theatre San Luis Obispo is opening a new nonprofit dance school.

Founded in 2006, Ballet Theatre SLO has occupied the Dance Obispo studio in downtown San Luis Obispo since the fall of 2009. Now the company has a studio of its own.

The School of Ballet Theatre San Luis Obispo will open Nov. 1 at 209 Bonetti Drive in a space shared with Aikido of San Luis Obispo, according to a news release. Classes will be offered in styles including ballet, tap, musical theater jazz and fitness barre, with plans to add modern and folkloric dancing in the spring of 2014.

Artistic Director Theresa Slobodnik said the move was prompted in part by the closing of Dance Obispo.
