Why rent a dance studio instead of other open spaces, such as a loft or a banquet hall? There are many reasons why dance studios serve as the perfect setting for an event, namely:

Minimalist setup

Dance studios tend to have a very minimal setup. If you’re hosting an activity with lots of movement, such as a yoga or fitness class, then the furniture at other venues would just get in the way.

Dance studios are perfect because they come without obstacles. You can roll out yoga mats or cushions, sit down in a circle, turn on music, and dance throughout the room with your guests.

The only thing to keep in mind is that dance studios utilize a variety of unique flooring that can be prone to damage. Therefore, some studio owners may request that you remove your shoes or avoid bringing in additional equipment.

Design features that complement your event

Most dance studios have large windows that let in plenty of natural light. And thanks to the gear frequently found on-site, like barre bars, mirror walls, and aerial silks, they’re also the perfect setting for both fitness-themed productions as well as classic fitness classes.

Informative hosts

Like with most Peerspace rental venues, dance studio hosts are business owners who operate a dance studio day in and day out. This means they know about what makes their dance studio exceptional and how it can best serve your event needs.


Dance studios are some of the most affordable venue types on our platform. So while they can seem similar to loft and banquet hall spaces, the odds are, they will cost a lot less to rent than the loft and banquet spaces in your city. If budget is a big factor for you, then we definitely recommend you browse dance studio rental spaces on Peerspace in your location to see how they stack up!

So what event can you host in a dance studio? The sky is practically the limit!

Dance studios are also suitable for musical performances, including open mics or drum circles. This is because most studios will have some kind of sound system setup that you can plug a playlist into.

You can also rent a dance studio for a team-building outing, such as an improv workshop, due to the freedom of movement available to your group in such a large space. Some studios may even have a projector to screen a video or presentation.

Another reason to rent a dance studio for a day is for a photo or video shoot. Planning to take portraits of a dancer, yoga instructor, personal trainer, or athlete? Then it makes sense to set up a shoot in the environment where they’re most comfortable. Some dance studios have plenty of natural light, making it easy to get great photos without any extra lighting gear.

Lastly, dance studios make an ideal venue for a birthday party or another social function. They can accommodate large groups without the extensive setup required at other venues.

To recap, here are just a few of the activities you can host at a dance studio:

We want to share a couple of parting tips to ensure your booking is utter perfection. First, who are you booking this space for? If it’s for adults, choose a studio that has the amenities your group is looking for. If you’re booking a dance studio for a kid’s birthday party venue, ensure the space is kid-friendly.

Also, consider the number of people attending. Do you want a studio with outdoor space? Is colored LED lighting important for your event or are you okay with natural light?

Once you have made decisions as to these types of amenities, it can help refine your search further. And luckily, when you book a dance studio with Peerspace, you can quickly contact the studio’s host to double-check amenities and features to make your decision even easier.
