This space has been quiet for a couple of weeks. Chalk it up to one too many irons in the fire, not enough writing discipline, making merry at Christmas…it just didn’t get done. But today, I want to share one of the things that has been holding my attention:
Fusion DanceWorks is moving to a new home!
In our nearly fourteen years, Fusion has had three different locations in Edgewood. Each move has been a mark of growth and change in my business. In 2007, we opened our doors at Graffiti’s Bar & Grill. In 2011, we moved into the space at Cafe Rose; and our move to Woods Edge was in 2016. This move, however, feels a bit like a homecoming. Our new location is at the Edgewood Events Center…which was once Graffiti’s Bar & Grill. And Rosie Totman is one of the owners of this space…just as she owns Cafe Rose. So let’s take two sweet pieces of our past, roll them together, and create something new and beautiful, right?
I’ve known Rosie for…ever. Her daughter, Shelby, is one of my oldest and dearest friends, and I’ve worked alongside her at her cafe for over a decade. She’s an amazing cook, an inspiring entrepreneur, and a wonderful friend. (Oh, did I mention she’s also a winemaker? Pro-tip: have a friend who makes wine. Good wine - not hooch. You’re welcome.) Now, together with her sister, Marge (who is my coffee supplier…she keeps me well-caffeinated), they are going to bring their amazing food and baked goods to the masses through this catering company and event space. And they’re also welcoming me into their space to continue to bring dance into the lives of a hundred kids every week. I am so happy for their growth, and I’m so thankful for this partnership - allowing Fusion to continue to grow as well.
Who knows where the next five years will take my small business. I certainly pray we continue to grow, and you can bet I’ll be "dreaming big and working hard” to get to the next step. But for right now, I am so thankful to be where we are.
Sending you all of the love, friends.
My name is Miranda and I'm a mom, spouse, dance teacher, and entrepreneur. I’m going to share my life with you. The good, the bad, the weird. I hope to inspire you, encourage you, make you laugh. I’ll be honest. And I can’t wait to learn more about you through it all.
