to be able to open a dance studio in Sunnyside
  • Petitioned Sunnyside Zoning

This petition was delivered to:

Sunnyside Zoning

to be able to open a dance studio in Sunnyside

    1. Yasko Takeno-Williams
    2. Petition by

      Yasko Takeno-Williams

      sunnyside, NY

My name is Yasko Takeno-Williams, director of SUNNYSIDE BALLET(www.sunnysideballet.com).I tried unsuccessfully to open a ballet studio on 43rd Avenue (between 43rd and 44th). After securing a lease I was immediately made aware of the zoning violation for such a business. It is this matter that I am now seeking your attention and support. I would simply like to build a dance space where we can also have yoga classes and kid friendly activities. This petition is in support of changing the necessary zoning to allow art oriented and dance oriented businesses in that small stretch of property. It will be presented to the Dept of City Planning as well as Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer. Anything you can do to shed some light on this matter will be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to contact me directly for further information. Thank you Yasko Takeno-Williams sunnysideballet@gmail.com

      I come from a family of dancers. My grandmother did ballet and ballroom, she met my grandfather at a ballroom competition. From then on they were partners in dancing ad eventually became partners in marriage. Each one of the children in our family dances, my two older brothers street dance, my younger brother taps and I do ballet. I was thrilled when my youngest brother started ballet, and I was reminded of the thrill I got when I first started ballet. It's such a beautiful way of expressing one's self, it's only fair that anyone who wishes to gets to try. And who knows, one of then could be a future ballerina... ;)
