BURTON, Michigan — Little girls in pink tutus jump and pirouette across a worn wooden floor that once lined the old sanctuary of Phoenix United Methodist Church.
The room still houses Sunday School classes and coffee hour at the church but come Monday, the floor echoes with the sounds of music and tap shoes as L & L Dance Studio, opened last year by instructor Kara Hajek of Grand Blanc.
It’s a peaceful coexistence, said the Rev. Bruce Billing, also known as the pastor of Atherton United Methodist Church.
