"The Site" (25 High Street, Carlisle PA)

The first things you'll notice on entering The Site are the mammoth historical photos on the studio walls. But don't be fooled: These depictions of bygone Carlisle are the only antiquated items in sight. Located on Dickinson Avenue in back of 25-27 W. High Street, Dickinson’s new, state-of-the-art dance studio/living space boasts a spacious, sprung-floor practice space and performing-arts residence in the heart of the downtown district. And there's a whiff of innovation in the air.
