Attention !! If you have not been to the studio, it can be hard to find, as there is no sign, and it is just a plain looking two story white house, but it is directly across from America's Best Realty and the Pet Resort and next to Research Triangle Dentist, all of which are well marked.

    Since I'm coming from Burlington, what would someone advise the earliest I can arrive or wait in the area so as to now be on the hwy in the dark?

      You can wait in the lot if you want. There is a line dance thing before our dance so there will be people there. It is about 60 minutes from Burlington. I would take 85 to the Durham Freeway and follow directions above.
