Danceography celebrates grand opening with ribbon cutting

Laura Klima has been dancing since she was a little girl. But recently, she learned the fulfillment that comes from sharing her passion with others. Klima opened Danceography in time for fall enrollment in 2014, and has seen tremendous growth since then. "I've been dancing since I was 2 years old and could never get enough of it. It's my number one passion in life," Klima says.

Population scientists describe the Baby Boom generation as anybody born between the years 1946 and 1964.
