Studio Two Three Buys Dogtown Dance Theater

Good news for all the creative types in the area.




The announcement was made on Facebook by Studio Two Three

We’ve been alluding for months to a big, crazy, amazing and beautiful thing and we’re finally able to share:
WE’RE BUYING A BUILDING! We close November 18th and then renovations begin to make the space a great home for our 180 member artists.

The building is not just any building–– it’s the former home of Dogtown Dance Theater–– a beautiful community arts space in the heart of Manchester, the neighborhood where we first opened our doors 13 years ago.
We are purchasing it from Dr. Bob Petres, who has lovingly invested 15 years of his life renovating the space out of a dedication and commitment to arts and culture. It’s this dedication that inspired him to accept Studio Two Three’s offer, ensuring the future of this beautiful space as a community-based organization. This rare and unlikely opportunity will not happen again for our mid-sized nonprofit.

We’ll be sharing more details soon— but for now you can check out the Richmond Times Dispatch link in our stories 🧡

We’ve got a big fundraising haul ahead but we know we can do it with the support of our community!

Here is the link to the RTD story.
