The Brennan Rock & Roll Academy in Sioux Falls has announced it is closing.  The last lessons at the academy will be on December 23, 2016.

The Brennan Rock & Roll Academy was established by Dollar Loan Center owner Chuck Brennan.

The Brennan Rock & Roll Academy website posted:

On November 8th, 2016, the voters in South Dakota overwhelmingly passed a ballot initiative to eliminate licensed short term lending. Dollar Loan Center, the key sponsor of the BRRA, was given only 5 days by the State of South Dakota to comply with this change of law. This has caused an incredible ripple effect across the state, and especially for the BRRA, our students, and our volunteers. The reality is, a large majority of our donations came, directly or indirectly, from Dollar Loan Center. Without a substantial and dependable source of funds to continue providing nearly 200 free lessons every week, the Board of Directors for the BRRA has made the difficult decision to dissolve the non-profit. The last lessons provided to our students will be held on December 23rd, 2016.
