Express & Echo Business Award winner up-scales local business
Ava Barron Thomas, Entrepreneur of the Year winner of the Express and Echo Awards 2017 says exposure from the prestigious awards helped secure the investors needed to expand the successful DanSci Dance Studios in Exeter.
DanSci Dance Studio has been running children’s and adults dance classes for over 5 years in Exeter, proud of their status as one of the counties only registered Fit to Dance spaces boasting professional dance facilities for the City of Exeter to enjoy. The business is delighted to expand into new premises on Summerland Street 5 times the size. They now offer three professional dance spaces with sprung Harlequin Dance flooring, audio systems and air control. Not to mention the launch of the new dance wear shop and the juice ‘barre’ where dancers and non-dancers alike can enjoy a healthy smoothie or cheeky shake!
