Creating Dance Space In Your Home

If you have a dancer that is passionate about dance, chances are they make the most of the space in their room or throughout your house to practice.  Have you heard those words?  “Mom, could we add a ballet barre over here and a mirror on that wall?”  My own daughter had quite a bit of dance space in her room and a space to tap, but the ideas were always flowing on how it could be further enhanced.

  1. I love these ideas! I have two daughters who dance. One does it as a hobby and goes once a week to a dance group. The other one takes it very seriously and is part of a dance school where she trains five hours a week and also recently began dance theory. When she’s at home, she often moves the couches away and the rug and then has a tiled floor to practice on. You can see her practicing here and read about her first performance in Cape Town, South Africa (we live almost 2 hours outside of Cape Town).

    I also have a Saturday blog hop going on right now. Have a great Saturday!

    • Thanks for stopping by Christina! So fun to be reminded that girls all over the world share a passion for dance.

  2. So many beautiful ideas! No dancers in my house, but it’s still fun to look.

    Happy Sharefest!

  3. We have three girls and are considering installing a ballet barre. These are good ideas–thanks!

  4. We don’t have the room for a barre but we made a portable dance floor. We bought a box of laminate flooring that makes a 4 foot square. My husband secured it with plywood underneath to make it sturdier. Whenever my daughter wants to practice her turning, she pulls the small dance floor out and voila!

    • Great idea Christine! Thanks for sharing!

  5. So many great options for dance space in your home. Having a dance studio, I always tell my students to practice, practice, practice. If they have a fun space at home dedicated to dance, I think practice is that much easier.

  6. Some of the rooms toward the end we’re really cute ????????????????????????????????????????????????
