ST. CLOUD – A downtown St. Cloud dance and fitness studio focused on body positivity is closing.
Lucent Movement Arts, located at 515 West St. Gemain Street, will close on March 20.
In a Facebook post, owner and founder Scarlette Revolver wrote that the decision to shut down Lucent was difficult and painful, and thanked the students, instructors and the community for their support at the studio.

“Our physical space is shutting down and we’ll be on hiatus indefinitely – but that’s not a goodbye forever,” Revolver wrote. “I don’t know what form LMA will take in the future; I am confident that something new and beautiful will come out of it.
On Saturday a GoFundMe campaign titled “For the Love of Lucent” was launched and raised over $ 600 of a goal of $ 3,500.
Revolver says the Lucent Movement Arts community will always have the company’s social media pages as a way to stay connected.
“LMA’s core values are resolved,” Revolver continued. “ALL bodies are worthy of inclusive, accessible and safe spaces for dance and movement. Body liberation and healing is our foundation and we will continue to fiercely defend this message on our social platforms.”
In 2019, the studio moved into its current downtown space and added aerial fitness classes to the lineup. Last year, Lucent switched to virtual classes amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
