New Store In The Store
CONGRATS TO FRANK Haxel and Cindy Vancil, owners of Vancil Performing Arts, for opening their Dancer's Dream studio inside our historic Dodd Building at Fifth and Maine.
Dancer's Dream is located at 503 Maine, just east of the corner of Fifth and Maine. Frank spent many hard months tearing the back area apart and bringing it back to life. The coolest discovery was finding the old Mercantile Bank sign above the bank vault. It's been preserved and the vault is now part of the dressing room and show area.
Dancer's Dream is officially open for business and all Vancil students get 20 percent off today.
Second String Music partnered with Vancil Performing Arts early on, and the relationship has been fantastic. You get four free music lessons if you buy or rent an instrument from us, and Vancil students get 10 percent off any purchase. Vancil's music department has grown so much that Frank had to buy the building across the parking lot at Eighth and Ohio, and they have a state of the art center with great teachers.
We have more big news coming from Fifth and Maine, hopefully within a month or so. Downtown Quincy rocks!
