Professional dancers either have their dance studios within their homes or they use already established dance studios close to them. In every dance studio, there are conventional elements that must be incorporated to make it comfortable and usable. Having mirrors within the dancing space is a traditional requirement for professional dace studios.  Dance studio owners may install the portable or fixed dance mirrors within their studios. The choice of the dance mirror to be used is dependent on various factors which include the following.

 The availability of space

 Most studio dance instructors do not have personal spaces where they can put up their studios. When they do not have personal spaces, they rent available spaces that are conveniently located. In such locations, they do not need to install permanent dance mirrors since they have rented space. Portable mirrors are suitable since they can be moved when space is required for other purposes.

The nature of the walls of the studio

Due to improvement in construction technology in modern society, many structures are constructed using glass. This means that mounting other materials such as mirrors on the glass walls could be difficult. When dance instructors have such spaces, and they need to install mirrors, they prefer having portable mirrors. The portable mirrors do not require mounting and can easily be moved around a room when they are needed. Also, having portable mirrors in such a space helps to protect the glass walls from damage. Damaging the mirrors may cost the owners a fortune especially if they cannot afford and they are just starting up on their venture.

When there is constant movement

 There are individuals who take up dancing as a full-time career. They are required to constantly practice so that they can improve their skills. With this, it is essential to have a portable dance mirror which can be carried around for practice. For instance, when an individual goes to a new location where they are expected to perform, they may not have access to a studio but have a room where they can put up their portable mirrors and engage in the practice. Such professionals invest a great deal in having mirrors that cater to their needs wherever they go.

When there is not enough space

 Some dance studios may be used for other purposes concurrently. This may prompt the dance instructors to buy portable mirrors to avoid interfering with the activities of other users. The portable glass mirrors may be used as a partition when space is being shared.
