Birthday celebrations – Studio17 turns 1!

It’s August, which means Studio17 is a year old.

A year old!

We cannot believe it. In a blink of an eye, the Studio has been open for 12 whole months and it’s been a rollercoaster ride (one which we enjoy, we should add). Sure, there have been some challenges along the way but what new business doesn’t?

Most of you know the origin story of Studio17 but to recap, the inspiration to open a dance studio in Southampton’s city centre came after I saw some of the facilities my daughter was training in. They were dusty and of poor quality. So, along with my business partner Glenn, whose daughter is also dance-mad, we built Studio17.

It’s been a real labour of love and love it we do. We love seeing all the different groups come in and use the space and what’s special is, we get to witness first-hand the positive impact they have on the people who attend the classes and the love shared between everyone. From ballet to baby massage, to yoga to streetdance, the benefits of each session are clear to see.

We are really looking forward to saying hello to returning groups after the summer break and welcoming new organisations into the Studio17 family. The first being Les Mills. The internationally renowned fitness organisation will start to hold sessions in the Studio from September. Fitness and exercise are something Glenn and I are both very passionate about so to be able to bring this fantastic service to another venue in Southampton is very exciting.

We will be announcing more details over the coming weeks but for now, all that remains us to say thank you.

We would like to thank each and every person who has booked time in our Studio this year and everyone who has attended a session at Studio17. Without you, we wouldn’t be here. We hope you have enjoyed being in Studio17 as much as we have enjoyed having you. We hope to see you soon!
