It was announced last week that D'Alto Studios in Evansville is set to close.

According to their post on Facebook, "D’Alto Studio of Performing Arts will be closing in July 2018 after nine wonderful, crazy years on Stockwell Road. The Dalto’s and Madi’s have been on a long mission to provide a place of learning through work in the performing arts in an environment of collaboration, mutual respect, acceptance and love. We have been so blessed to know and work with hundreds upon hundreds of amazing students, families, and instructors over the course of our time at the Studio."

They  go on to outline how the final months will be handled at the studio, "Our final five months will be packed with activity. Along with current classes and summer camps, we are planning a May dance showcase and three more kids’ productions including Mary Poppins Jr, A Little Princess, and The Wizard of Oz . Classes will go through May. Summer camps will be all that we offer in June. Instructors at the studio who are currently offering private lessons including Joe and Alax ,Maria, Kim, Naem , Amelia and Laura, will continue to offer those lessons to their current students elsewhere beginning in June. I will join Michael in teaching from our house. In July we will close the doors and leave the Stockwell space in the hands of a new business (unknown). Dance students will be advised when Olga, Amelia, Nick, Sara, Laura, Trinity, Olivia and Katie make new plans. Many D’Alto instructors will teach and direct for Children’s Theatre of Southern Indiana, a nonprofit theatre company we launched late last year, which will offer workshops, triple threat and acting classes, and theatrical productions on a somewhat smaller scale, beginning in August in a location still to be determined. Dance will continue to be taught only in the triple threat classes."
