How do I choose the perfect dance studio in London?

Are you planning a dance event? Whether you’re teaching a ballroom dance class, rehearsing a play, preparing for a contemporary dance competition or just practising yoga, having the best dance studio for your purpose is essential. But how can you tell if a dance studio is a good one?

  • Floor – the surface should be smooth, slip-resistant and hard-wearing. Double check whether it’s suitable for your needs – it’s best if you schedule a viewing with your venue manager to see the studio in person. Some dance rooms in London have professional sprung flooring for the best experience.
  • Sound system – This depends on the type of event you’re planning. In some cases, only a piano is used for accompaniment. Before you make your final booking, contact the venue manager to check if the studio has everything you need. If you’re booking a dance performance venue, make sure you can pump up the bass! 
  • Mirror, mirror on the wall – Actually, one mirror is not enough! It should cover at least one wall, from floor to ceiling. The more reflective surfaces the dance practice room has, the better, as mirrors help dancers track their moves and choreographers figure out the best sequence.
  • Support and balance – If you’re into ballet, you probably know what a barre is. The name refers to a stationary handrail, which is used for support while exercising. Barres can be useful for classical ballet and contemporary dance lessons, as well as workouts.

Other things to keep in mind when booking a dance studio

Now you know what you should pay attention to when looking for good dance studios. But there are still some other things to remember before you decide which one you’re going to book.

  • Capacity – When it comes to dance studio hire, space is extremely important. So before you book your venue, consider how many people are going to use it and how much room you’re going to need to be able to move around comfortably.
  • Hire fee – The most popular pricing model for dance studios is the one based on the hourly hire fee. It’s also the most convenient if you’re trying to save some money, as it enables you to use the space for the exact time you need, whether you’re booking a dance studio for an hour or more. Always remember to check the studio’s opening hours! Of course, some venues will let you rent the rehearsal space for an entire day. You may even ask the studio manager for a bespoke quote suitable for your budget and event type, so don’t be afraid to negotiate!
  • Location – This also plays an important role in choosing the right space. If you’re hosting a dance class, pick a location that your attendees will be able to find and access easily. Pay attention to public transport: the proximity to bus routes and Tube stations is a huge plus. In some cases, you may even find a studio with a parking lot. You’ll find dance halls and studios all over the city, from hip spots in East London to professional spaces in the South.

What kind of events and activities can I host in a dance venue?

Studios are not only good for choreography recording, dance workshops and rehearsals, but can also host a broad variety of events. Bright, spacious, with excellent acoustics and a proper sound system, a dance studio could be great for a birthday party or a wedding! Isn’t it amazing how such a simple space can be used in so many different ways? Let’s take a look at some exciting types of activities that can be hosted in a dance studio:

  • Bride-to-be bash – Event professionals are always coming up with amazing creative ideas for girls nights out, but there’s nothing quite like a hen party dance class! There’s no more comfortable environment than the company of your best friends. You can be as awkward and clumsy as you like and it will still be a lot of fun. Also, think about the possible themes. Dirty Dancing, cabaret, Michael Jackson, 80s disco – you name it! Put on your dancing shoes and make your hen party an unforgettable one.
  • Pole dancing – The popularity of this art form is increasing rapidly and new pole dance studios in London are popping up like mushrooms. The myth that it’s just for young women needs to be busted. For instance, Greta Pontarelli, who is 62, became the World Pole Sports Master Champion at the 2013 IPSF World Pole Sports Competition in London. What’s even more surprising, the male pole dancing scene is also growing! Private pole dancing lessons are the current trend for all ages and genders.
  • Bollywood dance classes – This dance style is especially eclectic. Not only does it have an Indian origin, but it’s also influenced by jazz, street and hip-hop, to name just a few dance types. Bollywood dances include a variety of styles like Bhangra, a Punjabi dance traditionally performed to celebrate harvest time, which is why it involves a lot of arm movements. Because of its dynamics, it requires dancers to have a lot of space. Tagvenue is here to help you find the right dance studio for your Bollywood dance classes.
  • Kids parties – Hiring a dance studio is a particularly good idea if you’re organising a birthday bash for your little one. Children enjoy movement and they’ll love having a kids party in a dance studio. Dance party themes for kids are often inspired by Disney princesses or other popular movies, like Frozen. Remember to find a dance studio that’s suitable for kids to run around in. Also, make sure you’re allowed to decorate it for the party. A space for some snacks afterwards is a good idea as well. Last but not least, it’s important to have a party host who has a way with children and knows how to teach some fun choreography.
  • Rehearsal – You can also use dance studios as a rehearsal room in London for practice purposes. Need a dance rehearsal space? Whether you’re planning a dance recital, theatre performance, polishing, technical or dress rehearsal, Tagvenue has the right space for you.
  • Dance exams – For both solo and group dance exams it’s crucial to have a space that features a table for the jury. Remember to provide all the necessary facilities for a specific type of exam.

  • Health benefits – Dance keeps your muscles and joints in good condition, and it improves flexibility, strength and balance. So you can do something good for your body while also having fun!
  • There’s a style for everyone – Are you into Latin dances? Choose bachata, mambo or salsa. European countries also offer a wide variety of styles, from Spanish flamenco to Portuguese fandango. Last but not least, you can use a dance studio for yoga or Pilates classes. Physical movement is not just about the body, it’s also about the soul. Studio hire for your yoga class is fast and stress-free with our easy-to-use platform.
  • They’re a fun activity to do together – If you’re looking for something fun that you can do together with a group of friends or your partner, dancing is a great idea!
