The Brentwood dance school the Studio Inc. celebrated its 25th anniversary at its spring show, “I Feel Like Dancing,” on June 4 at the Brentwood High School auditorium. Almost 100 students performed 36 numbers, followed by an award ceremony that included remarks from the founder of the studio, Kim Swanson, and the director Amanda Fedor, Swanson’s daughter.

Said Swanson, “The reason I started the studio 25 years ago was so I’d have a place for my daughter to learn how to dance.”

Fedor presented awards to graduating seniors Hannah Frankel, Naomi Frankel and Mia Hicks-Thomas.

The Studio Inc., at 1332 Strassner Dr. in the Hanley Industrial Court, has been in Brentwood for over 15 years.
