Chipman Commons is a "neighboring-place.

Chipman Commons is a place that was largely forgotten and neglected. It was quickly becoming an eyesore in the neighborhood. The repurposing and restoration dream for Chipman Commons originated within a people called New Beginnings Church.  
They saw a overlooked neighborhood in need of faithful presence and an opportunity to add hope and beauty in the midst of brokenness. 

In March 2013, New Beginnings Church purchased the Chipman Commons (formerly known as Summit Plaza). New Beginnings envisioned a place that would host a variety of community-minded businesses, neighborhood-benefiting non-profits, and community-forming churches.
Chipman Commons is passionately pursuing partners and usages for the facilities for the good of the entire neighborhood.

Susan’s World of Dance

Dance is an expression of the soul. It conveys joy and sadness, love and hate, anger and compassion. Every dance is a unique act of personal or collective expression.


We at Susan’s World of Dance are a Christian based dance school and believe any person can learn to dance, when there is patience and understanding.  We encourage creativity and the ability for dancers to trust their accomplishments as they enjoy learning dance skills while developing self- confidence and satisfaction.


We create a nurturing atmosphere where adults and children can feel comfortable learning to dance at their own pace.


Susan’s World of Dance offers high-quality classes for all ages and different levels, from beginner to advanced. We love and honor all types of dance and movement; with something for everyone.  We look forward to welcoming you here!

We have themes each week emphasizing colors, literary characters, holidays, habitats, etc.  The study of traditional preschool skills revolves around the weekly themes. We are striving to strike a balance of activities to enhance all areas of a child’s growth, while providing a safe, happy, and positive “first school” experience.
