Finding room to practice your dancing at home can be a real challenge. Furniture takes up much of the space in a house and when you finally do find a bit of room to move you quickly learn that you are under foot much of the time. Why not build a tiny, backyard studio out of a shipping container?
A shipping container dance studio can be as fancy or as minimal as you like. Want to put in as little effort as possible? That’s just fine. Since your won’t be living in the space plumbing won’t be necessary, electrical can be minimal, and insulation can be non-existent in more temperate climates. Alternatively, if you plan to spend a lot of time in your studio you may want to make it as comfortable as possible. Either way, make sure to do your research before beginning such a project to avoid any surprises along the way.
As far as the dance studio portion of your studio goes, very little is needed. A dance floor is built easily enough using two by fours for a frame and eight foot sheets of plywood. Put a bit of foam underneath for a cushy landing. Use a finish on the wood or leave it raw if you prefer. Just know that raw wood will become worn more quickly than finished wood. Add a ballet barre for under $200 and a CD player or iPod Dock and you have a practice space fit for a queen.
