Nearly 25 years after it moved into a downtown Bangor building, the Thomas School of Dance has moved out of its longtime home at 14-16 State St. The 91-year-old dance academy is presently looking for a new place to offer dance classes.
Thomas School of Dance owner Cassie Pillsbury said Monday that five months after former building owner Jane Bragg sold the building to Robb and Christen Gordon of Bangor, she and the new owners were not able to come to an agreement on a new lease. The school’s present lease runs out Wednesday, and Pillsbury has not yet found a permanent new home for her business.
Pillsbury has found a temporary home for the handful of classes the school is offering in August, and she has delayed the start of her fall classes to early October to allow for more time to find a permanent home.
