Dance studios are some of the most versatile spaces you can rent. Yes, you can hold a dance class or performance but you can also rehearse for a play, you can choreograph a music video, have a meditation workshop, the possibilities can go on for the length of this article. Whatever you need a dance studio space for, renting one is easy and very affordable. Here on Peerspace, we’ll be breaking down how much it costs to rent a dance studio and what to look for when browsing for your ideal dance studio rental.

Why rent a dance studio?

The first reason to rent a dance studio is because it will help you elevate your professionalism. If you are looking to start a business as a dance/yoga instructor, for a class or for private lessons, having a professional space to host your clients will strengthen your business. Not to mention, you will feel good for creating your ideal work environment. The same goes for rehearsing for a performance or even hosting the performance in a dance studio. It can all come together if you have the right space.

Which brings us to our second reason why you should rent a dance studio: the literal space. It is advised when starting your own dance studio that you have 100 square feet for every person dancing in the studio. It differs from a fitness studio only because dance takes up more space to spread and move around. Dance studios come in a variety of sizes and are free of obstructions such as furniture, pillars, or pedestrian traffic. A dance studio guarantees you privacy for your dance crew to make mistakes, try again, and to be as vulnerable in expressing whatever art you please.

And finally, a dance studio comes with the necessary equipment you might need to lead a successful class, rehearsal, or performance. Wall mirrors are an essential part of any dance studio and should be included in any place where you are practicing your moves. If you’re an instructor, it helps keep an eye on students that might be struggling, and if you are part of a dance troop, it helps keep each other in sync. Another essential part of a dance studio is the flooring, hardwood, and perfect for fluid movements. Only dance studios can provide those two elements perfectly. Some studios might have ballet barres, yoga equipment, aerial equipment, a stellar sound system or even lighting equipment to help get you as close to the final performance as possible.

Dance studio rentals charge by the hour, once you know how much time you require from the space you can determine the total cost.
