What’s Wrong With Dream Dance?
Dream dance studio and dance music studio Corona Dance Studio is shutting its doors after nearly four decades.
Corona Dance, a dance studio located in Fort Worth, Texas, closed its doors Tuesday.
The studio opened in 1972 with its first session at a school in Fort Hood, Texas.
The company closed its last session in 2018, according to its website.
The site lists two members of the Corona dance team, and no new performers have been hired to join the studio.
“I think we’ve had some bad luck with our owner,” Corona dancer Tami Koehler told ABC News.
“I think a lot of times they are not really open minded or open minded to a lot different people coming into the studio, but they are open minded and open minded when they want to try new things.
I’m hoping we can make some new music, and I’m hoping it can help people.”
Koehler said she hopes Corona’s demise will encourage other dance studios to close.
“There’s a lot more dance studios out there, but you never know when someone is going to come in and try something new,” she said.
“The only way you can get any kind of quality is by having people that want to take risks.”
Corona dancers have said that the music is often too similar to their own styles.
“They’re like, ‘Well, this is our style, but it’s just a little bit different,’ ” Koehl said.
“And I’m like, yeah, I can see that.”
Keehler said the Coronas demise has opened up a whole new space for dance music.
“It’s like we’re all in this together, and we can’t just shut down our studio,” she added.
