Once you’ve found your studio, it’s time to rehearse! Here are some points to remember before you go into practice.
Be ready. Walking into a practice session without knowing what you’re going to do will probably result in you wasting your time, so prepare for it. Learn your script, memorise the dance routine, and learn the music by heart.
The space. Make sure the room where you’re going for a rehearsal will fit everything you need for your practice. If you’re preparing for a performance, try to practice in a space that can best replicate the live set-up.
The equipment. Double check the studio has everything you need or there will be no obstacles to bringing your own gear. If you would like to leave your equipment at the studio ask to make sure you can do it and that it will be safe there.
The time. Rehearsal is a space for improvement, so allow yourself to use it to the fullest. Don’t rush the practice, and work steadily on your piece.
The recording. Nothing brings out the mistakes like a recording. Just use your phone, maybe an additional microphone, and record the practice. Catch out the mistakes, not to get angry over them, but to understand them and improve.
The final result. Think about when you’re going to perform, what the performance is about, or what do you want your recording to result in. Think about the people who will watch you or listen to you. Focus on what you want to deliver - and work towards that goal.
Costs in Melbourne for rehearsal studios can vary quite widely depending on the standard of the studio. For a basic rehearsal studio, you can expect to pay $50 to $75 per session. These sessions are offered in 4- to 8-hour blocks, and most studios are open during both the day and the evening. For weekends, expect to pay on the higher end of the price scale. Some recording studios offer rehearsal space as well, and these can be slightly more expensive. These studios will range from $80 to $100 per session. (All data from Tagvenue.)
Start your search for a rehearsal space among South Melbourne streets near the Docklands or South Yarra. If this location is too difficult to access, consider heading south to the neighbourhood near Richmond for several great options. You may also find some excellent rehearsal spaces nearby, just south of the Melbourne Zoo. On the other side of the park, check out the spaces in Coburg and Thomastown that are focused on music rehearsal. If you would prefer to stay in the suburbs, explore options in Carrum Downs or away from the beach towards Rowville or Ravenhall.
When choosing a rehearsal studio, you may find that the included equipment will vary quite a bit depending on the type of space you have chosen. A music rehearsal space should be soundproofed and may consist of instruments, amps or cables, or at least have some that can be hired for a small fee. A performance rehearsal space such as a dance studio or blank canvas space, may provide some furniture or basic fit-out and should have a built-in sound system. If you expect a large group to attend, you may want to seek a studio that offers on-site parking for convenience.
If you are interested in small dance studios for your individual rehearsals, you can check out Warm-Up Studio at Love to Dance Studios in Altona, The Hall in Oakleigh South and Studio Two in Fairfield.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
