What’s next for Dance Studio Minneapolis?
With two weeks to go until the end of the year, Dance Studio Minneapolis, the newly renamed and remodeled dance studio that is a major draw to artists and performers around the Twin Cities, has been shut down.
The city of Minneapolis has filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection.
The news came Wednesday afternoon as Minneapolis’ former mayor, Betsy Hodges, took to Twitter to declare the studio closed, and to announce that it was “no longer operating.”
I am officially announcing that Dance Studio is no longer operating, and the building will remain vacant for the foreseeable future.

It will include performances by top names in the Minneapolis music scene, including DJs and choreographers.
But it will also include a series of events and events that will draw on a growing number of local dancers and performers, including the Minneapolis Jazz and Blues Festival, the first ever Jazz and Dance Festival in the U.S.
There is still time to see what this new dance studio can offer.
It is one of the most important and unique locations in Minneapolis.
