Dance institution finds new home due to violence concerns
After nearly five decades in the same location, a South Side community institution just moved. The Mayfair Academy of Fine Arts is celebrating its new home with a building dedication Saturday.
The dance school is only moving a few miles away. But Mayfair’s owner hopes that’s a world away from the violence that plagued the school’s old home on 79th Street.
WBEZ’s Richard Steele takes a tour with the owner in the audio above.
