It’s time to make more room for the growing talent at the Toledo Ballet, and that’s why they are moving their home from Franklin Park Mall to the Market Square next to Hobby Lobby on Monroe Street and Nantucket. The new location has double the square footage to accommodate four dance studios and a workout space for pilates, yoga and other fitness activities.
“Toledo Ballet has loved being at the mall for over thirty years. In 2006, we moved to our current location at the mall, and the space has served us beautifully. But our curriculum has exploded, and with that comes a need for both larger studios and additional studios,” explained Toledo Ballet executive director Mari Davies. “We tried hard to find adequate space within the greater mall property, but it just didn’t work out.”
The new location is still close to the shopping area, but provides a safer drop-off location where parents won’t have to navigate through mall traffic. The space is scheduled to be complete by early spring.
