Dance Studios Hire Guide

Searching for a dance studio hire? Melbourne has a range of dance studio options from small blank canvas spaces to fully fledged dance studios fit for large crews. This city is well known for its modern dance community - it’s the home of the Melbourne shuffle, after all. Take your search to the city and find a fantastic space in the bustling downtown or look for affordable dance studios in the suburbs. If you have difficulty with finding the type of studio you need, you are in the right place! We’re going to help you compare all the different options and find the best dance studio deals in the area.

Are you a dance instructor looking to start a dance school in Melbourne? Maybe you’re a couple of professional dancers looking for a space to practise? Or maybe you’re after a studio that will help you with your wedding dance? Either way, we’re going to help you search for the best dance studios in the city so that you can get started with your choreography in no time. We made you a list of the most important elements to consider before hiring a Melbourne dance studio:

  • Location - If you want to get a lot of students flocking to your dance classes, you need a hot location that’s easy to reach. First, check out the potential options in the city centre. Most people will be able to find a direct connection to the downtown, making it the best option if you want to host a big class. However, if individual lessons are what you’re after, feel free to search for studios locally - either in your area, or close to your students. Take advantage of many of Melbourne’s public transport options, and try to find a dance studio that is easy to commute to.
  • Space - The optimal amount of space for your perfect dance studio depends mostly on the amount of people willing to attend your classes. The more students you have, the more room your venue needs to have. If you’re hosting an exercise class you can get away with having just enough space for people to stand and spin around comfortably. But if you want to train dance styles that need a lot more space such as tango or jazz, you’re usually going to need way more room per couple or person. When in doubt, use the search filters function on Tagvenue to set a minimum room space for your dance studio.
  • Hire cost - Before you sign a contract with your studio, you have to make sure that the hire fees fit  your budget. If you don’t have a specific budget yet, you will have to figure out a couple of things. How many people will attend your classes? How much do you want to charge for your services?
  • Flooring - Good flooring is essential to have a good experience as a dancer. You should look either for an even, wooden floor, or a set of professional sprung flooring. It will help you move around more easily and safely. With proper footwear, you should be able to slide on it effortlessly, but also be able to maintain your footing well.
  • Sound system - Obviously, you’re going to need music to dance or exercise efficiently. Depending on the size of the studio, there are many ways to set up the speakers. For smaller spaces, one studio monitor with a shock-proof stand will be just enough. However, larger studios will have a stereo system with multiple speakers to ensure that clean sound all around the room.
  • Mirrors - While not essential, it’s very nice to have a set of mirrors so that you can see and correct your own mistakes in a way you couldn’t otherwise. Most dance studios will have at least one large mirror, but some will offer an entire mirror wall so that all your students will be able to use it comfortably at the same time.
  • Additional equipment - There are many different things which can be found in dance studios that are not essential, but they’re very nice to have. For example, ballet dancers get lots of use from a barre, as they are a great help with maintaining balance while practising difficult positions. They can also be used for many forms of exercise training. Air conditioning can help cool the studio down and make it a more comfortable dancing space, especially in hot Australian weather. Also, be on the lookout for studios that offer access to separate changing rooms and in-studio bathrooms.

After you settle on your ultimate Melbourne dance studio, the process of hiring your venue will be a breeze. Just contact the Venue Manager of your studio and they will provide you with all the necessary info, and schedule a meeting so that you can take a look at the studio and sign the hire agreement.

Which Melbourne districts have the best dance studios?

Start your hunt for a dance studio in Melbourne's beautiful downtown. You will find numerous fantastic options around the University of Melbourne. The streets of this picturesque neighbourhood are easily reached from the M2. They could be great options for anyone coming from out of town. While South Melbourne offers several studios for hire, this area may be more challenging to reach for anyone coming farther away, so you may want to consider this before hiring. You can find other studios to hire further south along the coast past Brighton in Moorabbin. The studios in this beautiful Melbourne suburb could be an excellent option for anyone trying to avoid city traffic

What should I expect to be included in my dance studio hire?

When choosing a dance studio, make sure the space has a proper slip-resistant sprung floor. This is necessary for an adequate dance surface and to avoid injury. The studio should also include a sound system, or at the very least speakers. Full-sized mirrors are also a standard feature, as is a ballet barre. Some studios will come with a piano or may have one available for hire.
