McCleish Dance Studio--1973
This gem of an artifact reveals many names of Irvington children who tapped and danced their way through childhood. Marjorie McCleish ran a dance studio at 5624 East Washington Street. Her students worked very hard and on June 9, 1973, they performed for their parents and the community at Manual High School. Perhaps some of our readers also took lessons from Mrs. McCleish. Feel free to share your memories! This program is courtesy of Amy Stewart Friedly. Mrs. McCleish's studio has seen several incantations. In 2011, it is the home of Homespun, a shop dedicated to selling local arts crafts.
