Shuffles & Ballet II dance studio recently added about 1,000 SF to its facility, after 27 years in the Merrill Shopping Center next to the Market Street Cinema in Little Rock.

The $250,000 remodel was a joint venture between Shuffles owner Jana Beard and the property owner, Cooper Realty Investments Inc., headquartered in Rogers.

Beard said the 8,500-SF space now has one additional dance room and an expanded lobby for parents.

"We designed the new studio with our very dedicated students and families in mind," Beard said.

All the dance rooms were reconfigured, fitted with new sprung flooring and equipped with new stereos, DVD players and wall-mounted flat-screen TVs to be used for training purposes.

Jason Barnett of Barnett Design in Little Rock designed the new space, and Bosley Construction Inc. of Little Rock handled the renovation, which began in the spring.

Shuffles & Ballet II is the official school of Ballet Arkansas.
