Ragdale breaks ground on a new dance studio named after Sybil Shearer

On Tuesday, members of the boards of the Ragdale Foundation and Morrison-Shearer Foundations gathered to celebrate the construction of the Studio House for Dance and Music at Ragdale, a North Shore artist residency program founded in 1976. Constructed alongside Ragdale's properties on the 5-acre Lake Forest estate, the Studio House includes a composer's suite and dance studio. The latter is named after Chicago modern dance pioneer Sybil Shearer. Lake Forest mayor Honorable George A Pandeleon attended to commemorate the occasion.
