“Our overall objective is to provide recreational opportunities for families in our community,” said Marsh. “I’m always up for new ideas. So, if a family comes and says, ‘hey we really wish you had a tap dance class.’ I love that, okay so now there’s a need for tap dance. Let me see how I can make it work so that I’m actually providing things our community is interested in.”
