#Troy: How a $3 million studio got so much more than its price tag
The $3.5 million studio was a bargain compared to the $1.2 million it cost to build, but it wasn’t a complete waste.
At least it wasn for the owners of the property at the time.
“We’re just not that lucky,” owner David Pate said.
“That was the best thing we could’ve done for the owner of the house and for our little girl.”
That little girl, Erin, is now the president of her daughter’s dance studio.
“She has the most incredible energy, she’s the most driven, she is just amazing,” Pate, who was in his 40s when the studio was built, said.
Now Erin runs the studio with her husband, Steve.
“The owner has a beautiful home and he has such a wonderful daughter,” Steve said.
They also have a son, Ben, who is now 6.
“There’s a lot of love for what we did,” Pates said.
Pate also owns the former location of the Troy Dance Studio, a small studio in the middle of town.
“They were very happy with it,” he said.
The owner said he wasn’t the only one who wanted to move the studio, and he’s still working on getting the building approved.
“I think people will come to the conclusion that I’m the only person who really cares,” he told ABC News.
But Erin and her husband have been busy raising money for their daughter’s studio, which they also built themselves.
They’re working with other dance studios to raise the funds for Erin’s dance company, and they’ve even got a Kickstarter page set up.
Erin Pate says her daughter Erin is a happy, energetic person who will always love her dancing.
She is the president and co-owner of Troy Dance Studios in Troy, Idaho, and the founder of the Erin Pates Dance Studio in Boise.
“It’s amazing that it’s been so long, but the kids are amazing, and it’s a very exciting time for the whole family,” PATE said.
Erin also has a dream of one day opening her own studio in Boise, Idaho.
She’s thinking about building a bigger studio for herself and for her daughter.
“What if I could do that for everyone?” she said.
She added that she would love to open a dance studio in her own hometown, but she’d be better off going to New York to make it happen.
“Maybe it would be nice to go back to Troy,” she said, laughing.
