Dance Studio Demolished …
Preservation Effort Fails

Debbie Reynolds‘ famous dance studio, where tons of celebs rehearsed over the last 4 decades, isn’t recognizable anymore — because it’s a giant pile of rubble now.
The building that housed Debbie Reynolds’ Legacy Studios was torn down over the weekend … and as you can see, all that remains on the North Hollywood site are mounds of bricks.
It’s a super sad ending for a dance studio frequented by tons of A-listers … Debbie opened the place in 1979, and it’s where celebs like Michael Jackson, Cher, Bette Midler, Mariah Carey, Usher, John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John rehearsed.
As we reported … Todd Fisher, Debbie’s son, planned on turning the building into a museum after she died of a stroke. Unfortunately, Todd’s vision never materialized and in October the building was sold at auction.
A petition to get the building historical landmark status recently failed, allowing the new owners to move forward with the demolition.
