Bravo Dance Studio - "Touch Tone Live Band Show" (August 27, 2011)




Location! Location! Location!
AHSA's Bravo Dance Studio (BDS) is at a site that is part of Planning Area 4B of the Pacific Commons Planned District. On March 2, 2010, the City Council of the City of Fremont approved a Planned District Major Amendment (PLN2010-00114) to allow a number of additional uses to locate within the center and limited uses such as dance school/studio to maximum of 7,700 sq ft in Planning Area 4B. Bravo Dance Studio is the first of its kind in the Planning Area 4B and occupies 3,400 sq ft.

It is so decorated for all functions, big and small.

Bravo is a customer-oriented Studio.
You suggest, Bravo listens.
Curtains are put up to block out lights, per suggestions from some seniors who are enjoying Tea Dance Parties during daytime at Bravo.

Portable partitions, suitable for different occasions, are used to decorate various parts of the studio.
Big screen TV for, of course, viewing.
