Alaska Music And Arts Grand Opening

Contributed by Jeffrey L. Sponsler

Have you ever had one of those days where you want to turn off the left brain and turn on the right hemisphere? You want to ax the algebra and cut out the calculus, lose the logic of Aristotle and Plato, shut down the sine waves and punt the Pythagorean Theorem. You instead want to engage your inner Baryshnikov, properly align your Chakras, bang out some Bruce Lee moves, and magnify your secret Mozart. Well the time has come to make the switch.

A new facility, the Alaska Music and Arts (AMA) complex, is having a grand opening September 24, 2016 from 2 to 5pm. There will be food and demonstrations of dance and martial arts. A tour of the new, state of the art music recording studio will be part of the day. The complex consists of two main buildings, the recording studio and the dance studio. The recording studio has sound-proof doors and walls, 4 isolation booths, a Ludwig kit, stacks of synthesizers and brand new API 1608 automated analog mixer. Your band's mix can be auditioned through high end JBL studio monitors. 

The dance studio has two rooms. Each room is 2000 square feet of maple hardwood floors, mirrors and dance bars. The ceilings are 14 feet high and each room has its own personal heating/cooling system.

The complex can be seen at and if you want to, you can register as a member and sign up for Shotokan karate classes, yoga classes (by Antiqua), ballet/dance classes (through Sonja's School of Dance). The karate classes have previously been taught at the Alaska Club and club students are welcome to train at the AMA. Telephone is (907) 745-4001.

The opening will feature live music and pizza.

So jack yourself into the matrix, accelerate the creative part of your brain and come see our fine new facility.

This new complex is sponsored by the Alaska Brain Center neurology clinic.
