The Gretchen Greene School of Dance Holds Ribbon Cutting Ceremony for New Studio on Whitemarsh Island

(SAVANNAH, GA) The Gretchen Greene School of Dance (GGSOD, LLC/TNT) held a grand opening and ribbon cutting celebration for its new studio. During the event, donations were collected for Healthy Savannah.

Located at 1007 Bryan Woods Loop on Whitemarsh Island, near the intersection of Bryan Woods Road and Highway 80, the new studio was designed and built by the Dewitt Tilton Group to provide more space and more accessibility to accommodate the different levels and needs of the students.

“We are so proud of our new studio’s spacious design which will allow us to share the art of dance with more students in Savannah,” said co-owner Travis Dodd. “Encouraging health and wellness is one of our missions at Gretchen Greene School of Dance, so being able to help Healthy Savannah through our grand opening celebration was a win-win.”

When Gretchen Greene (now Gretchen Dodd) completed her run as one of the famous Radio City Music Hall Rockettes in New York City, she returned to her hometown of Savannah and opened her first studio in 1969. Now almost 50 years later, she is joined by her two grown children, Trina and Travis, who are proud to help Gretchen achieve her dream of sharing the joy of dance with students, their families and the community.

“We were honored to work on this project because we know it will positively touch so many lives in our community,” said Kim Thomas, director of operations at Dewitt Tilton Group. “What makes the new dance studio stand out is not only the flow and function of the building but the curb appeal. The new facility features a fully covered, two-lane drop-off and pick-up station for the dance students.”

“The team at Dewitt Tilton Group has been great with solving problems during the design build,” added Dodd. ”They helped us with real estate and closing issues, enabling the process to go smoothly and efficiently.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony and grand opening celebration were free and open to the public. For more information or to contact the Gretchen Greene School of Dance, call 912.897.4235 or visit http://www.ggsod.com
