  1. 1

    Decide on the best location either in a room in your house or a space in your garage for your at home dance studio. Consider a place where the noise won't be a problem. Determine how much space you need for practicing your style of dance.

  2. 2

    Lay a wood floor. You can lay it yourself to save money, or hire a company to install wood flooring. Depending on your dance style, you may want to top your wood floor with a marley covering which you can purchase from dance flooring websites.

  3. 3

    Hang mirrors along one wall. You can hire someone to install mirrors from a glass company in your area. You can also purchase glassless mirrors from a dance supply website. They offer wall hanging mirrors and rolling stand mirrors.

  4. 4

    Build ballet barres on the opposite wall from the mirrors. The cheapest method is to use handrails and brackets purchased from a home supply store. You can also buy ballet barres from a dance supply website. They offer brackets, barres and free-standing barres.

  5. 5

    Add a stereo system to your dance studio space. Turn up the volume and start dancing.
