Ok, I posted photos of my dance space (cleverly angled to hide the mess) in my gallery.
It's really sort of a 1/4 basement, and hubby hung doors over the furnace and laundry area, so when the doors are shut, it looks just like a tiny little studio. :) I want bigger mirrors, but I want a lot of things.
We have really low ceilings, which sucks, but I've learned to get used to them. No veil work in THIS studio. LOL.
One wall is nothing but stacked up videotapes and dvds (and my ridiculously large collection of exercise videos.) So I didn't show that. It's also the motivation wall, though -- where I've hung pictures and printouts of my favorite emails from my mentors and fave dancers.
Under the stairs is hollow, so hubby and f-in-law made a storage space there. The door opens and you have 3 big deep shelves set about a foot back from the door. So there's room for my weight set, my step bench, extra swords, papers and notebooks, shoes, whatever. And hubby had the great idea to get a plastic hanging sweater holder to hang in there to store hip scarves in. How clever!
I have a tv, dvd, vcr, and cd player down there in the corner, so I can work with videos when I want. The big brown pouf sitting on the exercise bike is my "chair" when I'm just watching videos. That, or the Swiss ball, which hubby hung in a net off the ceiling over the TV. We have a punching bag in the corner, too.
Overall I think it's a pretty efficient use of little space. (About the ONLY efficient use of space in our house!) I can even fit another person down there with me, as long as we don't get TOO carried away.
The only thing I don't have room for is a barbell set, unless I stood it up in the corner of the closet. I kinda want a barbell now :)
So who else has a cool space? I want to post a pic of my friend's dining room that she converted into a dance space. It's AWESOME!
