New Dance Studio Has Ravenswood Buzzing

The historic Ravenswood Industrial Corridor has long been a home for creatives of all types. Over decades, countless painters, sculptors, musicians, glass blowers, dancers, metalsmiths, actors, woodworkers, and artisans of all varieties have opened their studios, galleries, workshops and schools in this dynamic stretch of Chicago’s north side. Even amidst a pandemic this community continues to grow; most recently with the opening of The Hive at 4706 N Ravenswood Ave.
