Major investment as dance studio opens

A major investment at what is turning into Forfar’s main leisure complex will see a local company add to its business portfolio.

Whilst building up a reputation for moving furniture at Forfar Removals and The Furniture House, Ally Leuchars, his wife Wendy, son Craig and daughter Chloe have opened the Dance Studio in Suttieside Road where members of the public can practice their own moves on the dance floor!

Work on the state-of-the art, fully air-conditioned studio has been carried out purely by local contractors, with the exception of the specially sprung dance floor which was installed by a Glasgow-based firm.

The investment at Suttieside sits well alongside the existing businesses, as Ally explains: “There is the ice rink, the curling rink, indoor bowling centre and Frosty’s fun house. They all complement each other. There are plenty of parking spaces, making this area a major complex. The dance studio can also be used as a meeting place for up to 80 and the overhead projector can be used for presentations.”

Chloe, a qualified dance instructor, has a full programme of dance classes lined up for all age groups.

She has performed with Forfar Musical Society and is currently rehearsing with the Angus Minstrels. She is now looking forward to welcoming dancers to a number of her classes which range from Streetdance, A Glee Club to Zumba, Zumbatomic and Hooping. In preparation for the opening of the dance studio she has trained in street dance at the Street Dance Teacher Training Company in Bristol, she is a qualified instructor in Zumba and Zumbatomic (for children) and trained in hooping on a course held near Cambridge. After a hectic open week the studio opened on Monday.
