RISPA Expands into Milton

The performing arts school outgrew another location, so it moved north again and added a black box theater

Brian Littrell of the Back Street Boys was on hand recently to help open RISPA's new 11,000 square foot facility in Milton across from Alpharetta Country Club East and Crooked Creek subdivision.

RISPA offers ballet, jazz, acting, voice, musical theater and other facets of the performing arts. It first opened in downtown Alpharetta next door to Smokejack, but soon outgrew that space. A move north to Main Street Walk allowed for its first expansion, but after a few years they also outgrew that space.

Now RISPA is in an 11,000 square foot facility, with different size studios and rooms for all types of dance. Thsi larger space also allowed RISPA to add a 3,000 square foot black box theater, complete with permanent, state-of-the-art LED lighting and sound systems.

According to the RISPA website, this facility includes five dance studios, six vocal rooms, piano studio, industry standard recording studio, TV and film studio and a fully functioning professional theatre available for rentals and private events!  More than 100 classes are offered per week in addition to private coaching options and special events.

The performing arts center is owned by Danny Louchiey and Georgiana Fox-Louchiey, both of whom trained in London.

My daughter attended RISPA when she was younger in their first location tucked behind where the Cannery used to be. RISPA gave her a love for drama and as a result she went to North Springs High to study with the drama magnet there.Danny and Georgina are a wonderful couple - they really care about the kids - miss them both. So glad to see how RISPA has grown over the years.....congratulations!!!

It is so great to be part of the RISPA family. My daughters all attend this great performing art school and I love how it is helping them to be more self confident, sensible persons while developing their talents. It's a great place for kids.
