In 1968, Gina Tincher embarked on a journey that has influenced thousands of young people and continues touching lives, both young and old, over 50 years later. “Capital City Dance Studio began in the back of my house 53 years ago. My name is Laurie Tincher-Meyer, and I am proud to continue the quality dance education in Frankfort that my mother so passionately pursued.” “Mom’s mission was to provide self-esteem, a taste of the arts, and the beauty of music and movement to the children of our community. Performing as a professional dancer herself in London, England, she married my father while he was stationed in the military and moved to the small town of Frankfort, Kentucky, in 1955. What started as a studio with 75 students has grown to over 400 students with three studios.” Capital City Dance Studio is a charter member of Dance Masters of America, Bluegrass Chapter, established in 1986. Gina Tincher’s love of dance has inspired youngsters throughout the years to experience the grace, beauty and energy of her art. The tradition continues . . . .
