During my week off work I finally got to set up my home dance studio/gym in the garage! Now I have somewhere to practise tap dance 😀👍👍
It is a great space because the people who owned the house before had installed electricity for lights and heating, plus a proper door from the garden and a window, which brings natural light. There is also plenty of light from the transparent roof.
The studio is comprised of the following:
- Interlocking foam floor tiles (wood effect)
- 3 over-the-door mirrors (around £14 each from The Range)
- Cube unit for storing dumbbells etc
- Foldaway ballet barre
- Tap board
- Motivational posters
I had attached some red ‘Dance’ lettering to the wall above the mirrors, but it fell down and broke overnight, so I need to find a way fix it and try to attach it more securely.
The next task is to get rid of the rest of the furniture sitting at the other end of the garage!
I’m so pleased with it because I was getting kind of frustrated with having nowhere to practise other than in the corridors and toilets at work. Yay!
Has anyone done anything similar?
