This white box, covering up the emergency exit of a vacated belly-dancing studio, will be the new entrance of Houston’s first indoor rowing facility, says founder Greg Scheinman. In West University Place, ROW Studios is building out the former Sirrom Dance behind the Randall’s in Weslayan Plaza and resurfacing the parking lot facing Academy St.
Scheinman says the buildout has taken the dance studio down to its studs to introduce an amphitheater that will be equipped with 3 tiers of rowing machines. Rowing guru and trainer Shane Farmer is ROW Studios co-founder and will be designing the classes that Scheinman expects to begin in April.
