Ready to get groovy? Don’t hesitate and hire your dream dance studio today!

Things to consider when hiring a dance studio in Sydney:

  • Space. When it comes to taking or hosting dance classes, figuring out the amount of space you need is key. Determining the space you need depends on multiple factors. How many people will be present? Are you dancing solo, in a formation, or as a couple? What dances are you going to practice and how much space do they usually require?
  • Location. Whether you want to teach people dancing, or rehearse with your dance crew, you will have to take the location and accessibility of your dance studio into consideration. Searching for studios in CBD, close to the Central Station, would be a good option if a lot of the dancers will have to commute from many different places.
  • Equipment. There’s a few things you need to remember in regards to the fit out and features of your potential hire. It’s essential that the venue has sprung floors, in order to prevent injuries, a barre and a set of floor-high mirrors are also very important. A sound system should be provided with the studio.
  • Cost. If you’re just starting out and you have some budget constraints, don’t worry! There are many affordable options for dance studios in Sydney. You can also search for blank canvas spaces, open halls, and warehouses available for hire. As long as they have good flooring for dancing safely, they can become great, budget-friendly alternatives for more conventional options.

Top 5 best ways to make money as a dance instructor

The people of Sydney love dancing, which is why there’s a lot of potential for up-and-coming dance teachers and instructors to start their businesses in Sydney. Whether you want to make dancing your profession, or just looking for a side job, Here’s a short list of the top 5 ways to make money as a dance instructor:

  • Group dance classes - Group classes are one of the most classic ways to teach people how to dance. They involve going through the moves with the group, followed by practice time with some individual help from the instructor, if necessary. Ask around for people looking for a dance class, hire an appropriately sized studio, and introduce your students to this incredible artform.
  • Individual dance lessons - When dancers become more advanced, they often look for individual lessons, especially if they want to dance competitively. This one will require more expertise, but if you’re a very good dancer and choreographer, it may become very profitable.
  • First dances - The bride and groom’s first dance is considered a very important part of the wedding. Therefore, every couple wants to make it special. If you’re proficient in more classic dance styles, like waltz or tango, you can offer dance classes specifically for engaged couples. 
  • Zumba classes - Many people find combining dance and fitness classes a very compelling option. Dance studios can be used for these types of exercise-oriented dancing, particularly zumba and jazzercise. If you’re a very energetic dancer, and want to use that energy in a productive manner, think about hosting some exercise classes.
  • Dance competition judge - Since dance competitions usually take place during the weekends, becoming a judge for these competitions could be a potentially interesting side-gig if you’re an experienced dancer in your style and category. Official tournaments hosted by federations and organisations will usually have a set of requirements for you to fulfill, but you can always start small with independent, local tournaments.
