Looking to rent a dance studio for a day? You don’t have to be a dancer yourself to appreciate a dance studio’s hardwood floors and wide-open spaces. In fact, many studios can host dozens of other kinds of activities, including yoga classes, musical performances, workshops, and more. If you’re looking for a flexible space to host a private event or photoshoot, then a dance studio may be just right for you. But how do you find one, let alone rent it for a day?
Peerspace is the largest online marketplace for hourly venue rentals, including but not limited to dance studios. So you’ve come to the right place! On our platform, you can find dance studios that range from the traditional to the unique, in cities and towns across North America and beyond. To see what we have available near you, click the link above and enter your city. Every venue has its own listing that includes lots of high-def photos, a detailed description of the space and its amenities written by the host, genuine reviews from past renters, and upfront pricing.
Plus, when you book a Peerspace venue, you have access to the Concierge service. This dedicated team can source any extras you need for your event or production — such as catering, lighting, and furnishings — and deliver them to you at the venue. No matter what you may need a dance studio for, it can take a lot of the hosting pressures off your shoulders.
With all that in mind, here’s how and where to rent a dance studio for a day!
Why rent a dance studio for a day?
What are the benefits of renting a dance studio compared to other open spaces, such as a loft or a conference hall? For one, 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 all around the room. The only thing to keep in mind is that dance floors are prone to damage, so some studio owners may request that you remove your shoes or avoid bringing in additional equipment.
Another reason to rent a dance studio for a day is for a photo or video shoot. If you’re planning to take portraits of a dancer, yoga instructor, personal trainer, or athlete, 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.

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.
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:
- Yoga class
- Dance class
- Meditation class
- Musical performance
- Photo or video shoot
- Improv workshop
- To shoot a production
- Birthday parties
- And more!
How to rent a dance studio for a day on Peerspace
So, how do you go about renting a dance studio? We recommend using Peerspace, the go-to platform for hourly venue rentals of all kinds. Peerspace makes it easy to find and book event spaces from local hosts by the day or hour, no matter what kind of event you’re hosting.
Start by selecting the activity you want to host and your location, such as a dance class in Boston. Then, set your search filters, including the number of attendees at your event, the price per hour, and the features and type of space you’re looking for.
In this case, you’ll select a “dance studio,” but you could also select “fitness studio,” “ballroom,” or “banquet hall,” depending on how flexible you are with the type of venue.
You can also search for additional features, such as a kitchen, a piano, or even exposed brick walls. (But don’t get too specific — we don’t know of many dance studios with a pool!)
Once you’ve found a place that meets your requirements, you can book it instantly (if available) or reach out to the local host with any questions. Then, contact the Concierge service to line up any additional amenities you need, such as equipment rentals or catering services.

Other considerations to keep in mind
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 check in with the studio’s host to double-check amenities and features to make your decision even easier.
