New business a ‘Dream’ for gymnasts

December 5, 2001

A business once hoping to land in the city of Basehor has found a permanent home in Tonganoxie.

On Monday, Dec. 3, the All About Dreams gymnastics studio hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark its opening.

Members of both the Basehor and Tonganoxie city councils were presents as well as the Basehor and Tonganoxie chamber of commerce.

All About Dreams hosted its grand opening on Nov. 1.

The studio, at 178th Street and State Avenue, is a full gym, entailing approximately 4,000 square feet and offers gymnastics students of all ages and levels a place to practice.

All About Dreams owner Gail Innis said she is happy with her new gym and anxious to begin teaching students.

"We like it here," Innis said. "The location is great and it is close to the highway. It really is right between Basehor and Tonganoxie."

Although Innis is finding the Tonganoxie area a good fit for her business, she said she preferred her first choice of Basehor.

"We would have liked to be in Basehor and I know the city of Basehor would have loved having us," Innis said.

The gymnastics studio was previously housed at the Highview Industrial Park located on 150th Street in Basehor, but because of development complications with the building, the business had to relocate.

Since the relocation, Innis has filed a lawsuit against Highview Industrial Park developer David Scott .

Scott's attorney filed a motion to dismiss the lawsuit, however, a judge denied the motion.

Although she has spent the last year trying to open her business and had numerous setbacks causing financial strain to her family, Innis said she was happy to be open.
