Previous Happenings

Zumba on the Plaza

In light of fitness and community, we are sponsors of Zumba on the Plaza! In between Zumba sessions, visitors are welcome to get chair massages and free gift cards from us here at TSPA Rochester. It’s an opportunity we’ve welcomed the past two consecutive summers.

First Annual Winter Drive

Last November’s One Warm Coat Drive was the first annual winter drive, also known as The Big 5 Winter Drive. Last year, 127 items were donated: 45 coats, 37 hats, 9 scarves, 18 pairs of gloves, 4 ear covers, 6 pairs of boots, and 8 pairs of snow pants. Donations are then passed over to Christmas Anonymous, to be given to those in need. Be sure to read on for details about this year!

Back to School Fundraiser

As a school ourselves, we value education! On August 9, 2018, a silent auction was held to raise money for a local school (voted by Facebook users). We got over $200 and supplies like backpacks and notebooks.

Why We Give Back

Here at TSPA Rochester, we stay on top of giving back to our thriving community! It is where we feel welcomed, comfortable, and where we can succeed. As a school fortunate enough to have our mentors and educators, professional supplies, and nice establishment, we strive to help other organizations develop and thrive as well. Having fun, making friends, and building a relationships are just bonuses.

A Better School

When a school is kind to their community, you know that as a student, you’ll be treated the same. Students can take comfort in attending our charity-forward school where kindness and sympathy is fostered. If we are a school of people who habitually putting others first, that consideration can extend to each other. We take pride in being more than a beauty school. We are here to inspire and help others succeed, inside and outside our doors. Take a closer look into our community at TSPA Rochester. Meet our educators here!
