This small dance studio is a tribute to the studios of my youth. I originally created it last year, but decided to elaborate on it. Once again, Sophie-David provided the inspiration for me to make another lot; this time with the "Flamingo of Dance" statue. Please read the instructions and comments on the Flamingo of Dance download page to make sure your Sims get their dance lessons the way you want them!

Back then, dance studios had a waiting room, a bathroom, a dressing room, an office and one studio. That was about it. They were dotted all over suburbs in my part of the world. The teacher taught one class at a time, and at the end, there was the Big Recital with all the classes. I credit my teachers for at least getting me to not trip over my own feet and walk just a little more gracefully.

This is a more modern version, inspired by this floor plan: Well, at least initially. Things kind of escalated from there. The lot was created in a fresh game made for lots only. No Sims ever set foot on this lot, and the lot has been compressed and Orb-ed. I have checked the OETreeDetail logs. Any tests were done in my other game, and I tested this lot for several Sim visits. My Sims seem happy here. I hope yours will be as well.

The lot was moved more to one side using Lot Adjuster. It was not expanded or shrunken, however ... just moved.

Pictured, but Not Included with the Download:

To get the tan recolor on the gym locker, you will need to download Michelle's recolor: I was unable to include it in the download.

Also, per Dincer Hepguler's TOU on the dh-sims-site, the dancing neon lady will need to be downloaded here: . Simply click on the picture.

Other Recommended Mods

BoilingOil's No Sim Loaded, no matter where you download your lots; or even if you don't download lots. ( This mod needs Cyjon's Smarter EP Check to work (

Menaceman 44's Lunatech Lighting fix makes those particular lights look a whole lot better ( ).

Perfect Plants by TwoJeffs makes caring for those plants a lot less of a hassle if a Sim owns the lot ( )

Oh, and this was made in a game with CEP:

Outside and to the side, there is a drink machine for hydration (soda, unfortunately, since Maxis did not stock the machines with water). Those getting a drink are encouraged to enjoy it outside. Fortunately, most Sims do.

The studio provides plenty of room to stretch and dance.

People waiting for the dancers to finish can enjoy some TV in the waiting room. There is a toy box for the young ones. The magazine rack, unfortunately, provides books and not magazines, but your Sims can still read if the TV is not interesting them.

People can also wait in the hallway and admire the dance trophies, if desired.

Lot Size: 3x2
Lot Price (furnished): 94,812

Additional Credits:
ScaryRob for pointing out something really obvious that I missed, my family for giving the lot a good look-over (and my daughter for some good suggestions), and the CC creators who provided us with so many tools to spark our imaginations.

Mootilda for the Turn on All Lights box and Lot Adjuster (otherwise, I probably would have had to do the lot all over again).

Chris Hatch for the Orb and the Lot Compressor.

Oh, and I'd like to especially thank Sophie-David for the inspiration to do this in the first place!
