How to Maximize Space in a Small Ballet Studio

Even though you might dream of one day owning and running a large ballet studio with tons of classes and students, that might not be the reality right now. Luckily, it's possible to embrace your small studio and make the most of it. These are a few tips for doing so.

Use Portable Barres

First of all, consider using portable barres instead of those that are mounted to the wall. Portable ballet barres for small studios don't take up a lot of space, and they can easily be moved out of the way when you don't need them, such as when you're using your studio to teach a different type of class.

Focus on Smaller Class Sizes

Smaller class sizes are usually ideal for smaller studios. Then, your students will have more space to move around. Plus, with smaller class sizes, you'll be able to give each student more individualized attention.

Keep the Studio Neat and Clean

Clutter is never a good look for a ballet studio. However, it can be an even bigger problem when you are working out of a smaller studio with limited space. Get rid of anything that isn't needed and that is taking up space, and require your students to pick up their jackets, dance bags and other items and hang them up or put them in an out-of-the-way area. Focusing on regularly picking up and cleaning the studio can help you avoid being overcrowded in a small space, and it can give your studio a more professional look as well.

Just because your ballet studio is small doesn't mean that you can't make the most of it. Contact us at Boss Ballet Barres today so that you can find out more about our portable barres, which are perfect for small studios and larger studios alike.
