"We wanted to virtually welcome people inside our process and offer this window into what goes on inside our studio," said Sue Schroeder, artistic director and co-founder of Core Dance. "We hope that everyone who is venturing out in Decatur for a walk in the neighborhood will pass by and enjoy the performance in our studio windows."
