  • Country line dancing lessons! What's not to like? There's also an arts program here and a theater program too (I think!). The space is very peaceful. The dancing takes place in a barn and they include snacks, beverages and even hand-held fans! Great time!
  • I went to a concert a couple months ago and it was underwhelming, the chairs were crowding the room and you could hear every footstep. I really want to enjoy going to events here, but I feel like there’s a lack of care put into planning and executing them. Another concern is the recent flyer I saw for the fundraiser...this is supposed to be an arts center yet the flier is so jumbled and just not appealing to look at. I really hope there will be some efforts made to up the quality of the shows/events that are put out in the future.
