Callanwolde settles lawsuit with former dance instructors


This story has been updated.

Callanwolde’s attorney also confirmed the settlement.

The lawsuit alleged the dance instructors started a business to compete with their former employer.

Green and the other dance instructor, Kelly Dent, started Dance Foundry in Decatur after leaving Callanwolde.  When the lawsuit was filed, Dance Foundry’s attorney said the conflict between the instructors and Callanwolde stemmed from Callanwolde’s decision to stop staging “The Nutcracker” during the holidays, a popular show.

The instructors were served with notice of the lawsuit while teaching a dance class at a local church.
