Ravel Dance Studio to Leave North Point Village Center

Ravel Dance Studio is leaving its home of 20 years in North Point Village Center to a new location in The Spectrum in January.

The move will allow the studio, which offers classes and performs recitals, to expand its programs and classes in the 5,000 square foot facility on 1763 Fountain Drive, said Janet Hall, the owner and artistic director.

“We’re really excited to be in the heart of Reston and offer more adult classes,” Hall said. “Right now, we are bursting at the seams with students. It’s exciting to be the only small business in that area.”

The new site has three state-of-the-art studios that were designed by the same company that worked on floor installations at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. The studio’s current location is roughly 3,600 square feet.

A more central location in Reston will also allow the studio to better display its classes, four classical ballets and professional work. The studio has invested roughly $400,000 to build out the new facility and roughly a year and three months of negotiating.

The studio also hopes to continue leveraging its partnership with Reston Community Center’s CenterStage for performance space, which is a major reason why the studio hopes to remain in Reston as it expands, Hall said.

Classes will begin to transition beginning Dec. 20th and the move should be complete by Jan. 3, the beginning of the second semester of classes.
