A local dance studio will be relocating soon in Cape Girardeau. Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place, Ltd. confirmed Academy of Dance Arts, formerly located in Town Plaza, will be moving into a 4,500 square-foot free standing building at 2612 Gerhardt. They will almost double their former size at the new location allowing for more students and greater flexibility for instruction.
Academy of Dance Arts has been located in the Cape Girardeau area since 1987 and offers classes in classical ballet, jazz, tap and hip hop. Students range in age from 3 and up. Kelsey said the school has already begun customizing the building for their use. He understood their move into the new building and opening should be completed by early April. The location is at the intersection of Gerhardt and Enterprise, right off of South Kingshighway.
