I’ve been square dancing with the Rosetown Ramblers at the Ankeny Street Studio since June. There is much to love about this studio, beginning with the fact that it is located in this nondescript building.
Along the side are tables and chairs. The decorations on the tables change with the seasons. One of my favorite details is the carpet-covered bumpers along the wall, which keep chairs from hitting the wall.Sadly, this space will be eliminated. The original owner of the building was a woman who was invested in the ballroom dance community. The building has been sold and the new owners are not interested in supporting the dance community. The Rosetown Ramblers will be dancing in Milwaukie in the future. And Portland will lose this unique space.
