Hometown Hero: Dance Instructor Opens New Location Amid Pandemic

ROCK HILL, S.C. (CN2 NEWS) — Lindsey Farris grew up dancing in Rock Hill and now she’s promoting creativity in the community.

For the last 12 years the Farris, owner of the Step South Dance Studio in Rock Hill has experienced many ups and downs, including opening a brand-new location amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Avery Ingle, an instructor at Step South Dance said, “It’s important to keep businesses like this alive because dancers like to say that this is their second home and it try is their second home. Even through the pandemic this is where I’ve found solitude and it’s been the same for all of our students.”

Farris said, “It brings me joy. It’s an outlet for me too, a creative outlet because I love to create and choreograph dances.”

Now, Farris is opening her largest location yet on Ebenezer Road. She says one of her most difficult experiences has been closing because of COVID-19, but she didn’t let that stop her.
