Main Street (Route 9) is easily accessible from Route 91 North (exit 19, turn, left onto Route 9, becomes Main Street in about 1/2 mile) or South (exit 20, straight through lights onto King Street, about 2 miles to Main/King Street intersection).
The beautiful and spacious studio is located on the fourth floor of the old Masonic Block (sometimes known as the “Coolidge Building,” as it once housed Calvin Coolidge’s law office). Today the ground floor of the building is occupied by a Northampton landmark, Fitzwilly’s restaurant.
At 340 open square feet and with 30-foot ceilings, the studio is indeed a treasure for the local dance community. In addition to the dance school, the studio is host to several regular Northampton dance events, including Friday night’s Dance Spree and Sunday morning Dance Spirit.
After 4:00 p.m., free parking is usually available in the Probate Court parking lot behind the building (enter through the Fitzwilly’s side or from King Street opposite Hotel Northampton). On-street metered parking is available. City of Northampton lots on Strong Avenue and Pleasant Street are also options. The Northampton Parking Garage is about 3 blocks away.
Operator-assisted elevator service is available during standard business hours. At other times access to the studio requires climbing three flights of stairs.
The studio can be rented for classes, rehearsals, workshops, and small performance events at reasonable rates. There are no facilities for food service or refrigeration. Absolutely no alcohol or smoking. Elevator service outside of weekday business hours can be contracted for separately. Please contact moc.loohcsecnadaennull@ofni
