Dawn Crafton Dance Connection Plans to Open a Second Location in Rockville This Summer
Let’s dance! There is a new dance studio coming to Rockville Town Square, and you may be familiar with the company. Dawn Crafton Dance Connection is opening its second location this June at 152 Gibbs Street next to Bar Louie.
“We are thrilled to be opening in Rockville Town Square,” said Dawn Crafton, who began her business in 1954, teaching classes in the basement of her home. “We spent so many years out near Gaithersburg Airpark, where for a long time there wasn’t much more than houses. It’s going to be wonderful to have a second location in the center of all the action. Parents will be able to walk to the market, dinner or run another errand while their kids are in class. It’s going to be great!”
“Dawn Crafton is truly a Montgomery County institution. Many of us can remember taking our children to ballet or tap class, or even being a student,” said Jenn Davidson, leasing associate for Federal Realty. “Today, there are new classes like Hip Hop and Ballet Floor Barre for all ages, but the experience is much the same. We’re very excited that Dawn Crafton Dance Connection will be part of the Rockville Town Square experience.”
The new location is three times the size of Dawn Crafton’s current location near the Gaithersburg Airpark. According to a news release, the added space will accommodate new classes, an expansive waiting area for parents, a new galley area for students needing to eat or study and expanded bathrooms, offices, a lobby and reception areas.
