Make our studio your studio.

Founded in September 2015, Dovetail Studios has become a community space for the arts on the North Side of Chicago. Dovetail Studios provides high quality dance training for dancers of all ages in a fun and encouraging environment.

Like a sport, dance has a trajectory. At Dovetail, we prioritize individual growth in whatever technique a dancer chooses to study. Our studio has training opportunities for the very young all the way to the working professional dancer. Our younger dance students get to witness the trajectory from beginner to professional just by being in the space. The mix of ages and levels under one roof makes training at Dovetail quite a unique experience.

Our rehabbed and ADA compliant 6,000 square foot space has :

3 dance studios (1,875, 800, 1,125 sq. ft),


QSC and JBL powered speakers,

ballet barres and mirrors in every studio (barres can be removed for performance rentals),

skylights in every studio,

two waiting areas for patrons,

two restrooms,

gender neutral changing room,

18 foot ceilings,

dimmable lighting,

ceiling fans,

separate HVAC systems for every studio.

Dovetail offers classes in a variety of dance styles, group fitness with a dance influence, and kids camps. If you are interested in a class but unsure of the level or class type, please call us and we can arrange for you to try or observe a class.

There are so many choices at Dovetail Studios; we are confident we can find the right fit for you and your family.

Dovetail is a welcome and unique addition to the neighborhood. Loads of interesting adult and child class options. Space is awesome and instructors are skilled and really accessible for questions or concerns. Try Dovetail! You’ll love it!

LOVE this neighborhood studio. The space is beautiful and the staff is friendly and personable. The owners get to know you by first name which puts such a nice personal touch on a workout place.
