The Danceforce studio, a dance and performance studio for female artists, was closed earlier this month after a 10-year shutdown by a federal judge.
The company was set to reopen on Oct. 1.
The shutdown had been blamed on insufficient state funding for its state-of-the-art dance studios.
A statement from the company said the closure had been due to “unforeseen circumstances and a lack of funding for the studio.”
A spokeswoman for Gov.
Scott Walker, who has championed the studio, said that Walker would be making an announcement about the studio’s future on Friday.
Walker, a Republican, is a former dance producer himself, having started the company with the goal of providing dance studios to women in Wisconsin.
The state has funded the company, but the state Department of Transportation has not approved the cost of the dance studio and there are still many questions about the state’s ability to finance a $200 million dance studio that would be needed to create and operate a dance studio.
The DST is expected to issue a final permit later this month, according to the Wisconsin Department of Administrative Services.
Walker said the dance studios were “essential” for women who perform in venues like the Marquee in Milwaukee, where he is performing.
“We are a state that’s going to be a great destination for the next generation of dancers, and this is a good thing,” Walker said in a statement.
He said the state was committed to working with the dance industry to create jobs and raise money for other needs, including roads and other infrastructure.
The move to reopen the dance production studio came less than a month after Walker signed legislation that included funding for two new dance studios in the state.
The legislation included funding to expand the Marquis Dance Studio in Madison, which has about 20 dancers.
The new dance studio will also include about 70 dancers.
