Dance studio relocated

“This location is proving to work out well,” dance instructor Cathy Pecora said of her moving her studio to the Elk Hotel in Sutton. “Since I began teaching dance in this area, my studio has been in several different locations,” she added, saying that she is optimistic about the current venue for Cathy Pecora’s Studio of Dance.
“We’re actually working in what once was the hotel’s dining room,” Pecora said, “and Poplar Forest was the most recent occupant.” She continued to comment that the area is larger than some of those in which she has worked, and that the floors are ideal.
