Chantilly Hall, the home of the Charlotte Dance Gypsies, was leased by the group in 2007. Once a Catholic elementary school, the gym has been converted into a dance hall which frequently accommodates over 100 dancers. The sprung wood floor was rescued from storage in Charleston, and was laid down and refinished in Charlotte.
