CHICO, Calif. - Hype Dance studio has been faced with many challenges of opening and closing over and over again.
"People would be so excited that dance was back and then we would have to close down again," said Owner of Hype Dance studio, Sarah Schneeweis.
Schneeweis has had her Chico studio for 17 years, but said the coronavirus has made it difficult to continue to operate.
"This class was canceled, we are doing this one on zoom, this one is not," said Schneeweis. "Making sure that all the students knew when to come, the families were coming in and we were like getting students and losing students."
But she's thankful her studio is open for now.
"It means the world to me to be open again," said Scheenweis. "I don't feel like life is complete in my world and all my families and students’ worlds without dance."
Inside of the dance studio, there are marks on the floor so that students will stay socially distanced and students are also required students to wear a mask while dancing.
"Each of our dance studio spaces has been blocked out where if you fill the capacity, everyone will at least still be six feet apart," said Schneeweis.
Student Tatum Vittitoe says although there have been many challenges, she is able to find the silver lining.
"I am still having a normal schedule for the most part at dance. So it feels really good to just come here and let myself be out there and express everything and kind of just let it go," said Vittitoe.
