Broadway in the Boulevard dance studio opens in Pittston


Broadway on the Boulevard (previously known as the Pittston David Blight School of Dance) will host its grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 25 at Rear 159 S. Main St., Pittston.

All families and people of the community are encouraged to stop by for complimentary refreshments, to check out the newly renovated facility and to meet the BOTB staff. Free BOTB t-shirts will given to those who register for fall classes that day.

The Pittston David Blight School of Dance, which had been located in downtown Pittston for over 20 years, changed ownership in late June of this year. New owners Rachel Leandri and Brad Chikowski bring an upbeat, artistic initiative into the already-evolving city of Pittston.

The ribbon cutting ceremony, conducted by Wilkes University’s Small Business Development Center, will take place at 1 p.m. in the parking lot. Instructor Jill Wetzel will conduct a ballroom demonstration with her students at 2 p.m. inside BOTB’s middle studio room.

An ice cream truck, balloon making and a DJ will also be included in the day’s festivities.
