Studio Rental & Practice

Studio Rental for Events

Our new, state-of-the art, main studio at 5246 N Elston, 2nd Floor, Chicago, IL 60630, is available for rent for events such as dances, parties, corporate events, rehearsals, workshops, and lessons.  This space can hold about 150 for dancing or theatre-style seating.  It has a huge maple hardwood dance floor, two multi-stall bathrooms, powerful built in sound system, excellent HVAC climate control, and cafe tables and seating.  With our large windows and skylights, it's bathed in sunlight during the day.  At night, our drapes and dynamic lighting system create a classy and elegant atmosphere.  We have a small kitchen with sink, fridge, microwave, and counter space.  Partition the room in several arrangements with our thick theatre drapes, and use our built in reception area for registrations and checking in.  30-car parking on property, as well as plenty of easy street parking.  We are convenient to get to using the Edens, Kennedy, Metra, or CTA.  Currently many Saturdays are available at a premium rate.  Contact us for pricing and availability.

Practice Time

For $6 per person, per hour, students may make appointments to use the studio to practice.  Partial hours are rounded up, no pro-rating.  Student practice must not interfere with private lessons and other MayI functions.  Any private lessons and other MayI functions will get priority for floor space and music.  MayI management and instructors also reserve the right to stop any student practices if they are disruptive.  Contact the studio in advance to schedule practice time.

In some rare cases, Instructors may waive the practice fee for their most active students.  You must bring a written note from your instructor to have this fee waived.  In this case, students must be practicing only the material approved by their instructor.
