Sneak Peek at the New MSCR East

The brand new MSCR East location is opening this month! This new facility is located in the Rolling Meadows Shopping Center at 4620 Cottage Grove Road, the outside sign is up check it out:

I was able to take a tour and take some pictures thanks to my tour guide Christine Reid, the Supervisor of Community Programs. The main rooms were mostly finished with remodeling and Christine described the various classes that will be held in each of the rooms. The modern facility is much much larger than you think with three very large studios, a meeting room, an art room, changing rooms and bathrooms. Keep reading this post to see pictures and descriptions of classes that will be held in the new rooms.

The MSCR East hours are Monday – Thursday 8am – 9pm, Friday 8am – 4pm, Saturday 8:30am – 1pm and Sunday 1:30pm – 5pm.
For more information go to mscr.org or call 608-204-3000.


This room faces the parking lot on Cottage Grove Road, and the types of classes that will be held here are Cross Training, Strong Women, Strength and Balancing and general fitness. This is the second largest of the three activity rooms.


The largest of all the activity rooms, this room will host all types of classes. Zumba, Cardio, Dark Rope, 45 Mix, Pound, Hip Hop Fitness and lots more. Can’t you see yourself in this room with a few dozen of your closest friends doing Zumba?


Here is where the kids dancing classes will be held. Fun classes like yoga, ballet, and maybe some rhythm and movement.


The art room is where you can learn how to make things and learn things that interest you. There will be beading, guitar playing, knitting, jewelry making, sewing, and Facebook classes. Kids, adults and seniors are all welcome to sign up.

MSCR expects to have 500 people per week using the facility and that number could climb to 1000 people per week. There are activities for ALL age groups infants to seniors. “We’re excited to serve the East side of Madison,” said Christine Reid. “We want people to check it out and use the space.” Reid also said MSCR is open to suggestions for classes and is always looking for volunteers who want to be instructors.
