Amid the current challenges, Allegro Community School of the Arts is excited to announce the purchase of Excell Dance, which will fold Excell dance programs into the full repertoire of Allegro offerings. Kim Bridges, owner of Excell Dance, will serve on the Allegro Board of Directors. Allegro will continue to use the Excell Dance brand.
Allegro will keep the Main and Fourth street locations currently occupied by Excell in Old Town Warrenton, giving the organization substantial presence throughout the Old Town district. Excell's programs will continue as they have with their teachers continuing.
“It has been my pleasure to raise young dancers in Warrenton for the past 12 years and I look forward to continuing the endeavor with Allegro,” says Excell owner Kim Bridges. “Over the years, I have observed Allegro theatre programming and felt it was a good fit for Excell. Allegro offers advanced programming to truly help dancers excel in their art.” She continued, “The Excell name and the quality that it stands for will continue to stand as a symbol of the arts in the Fauquier community. We are proud to stand by the talented instructors at Allegro to extend their artistic outreach.”
“Allegro could not be more pleased with the offer made by Kim Bridges and Excell staff to join our school. The classes and students they have attracted are a welcome addition to our programming,” says Lachelle Yoder, Allegro co-founder.
The official merger was to have taken place May 31. With the COVID-19 lock down, Allegro stepped in early to assist Excell, moving their classes to an online platform.
