Strictly Come Dancing | 2020

Athough Sky have some smaller studios for hire...

Riverside wouldn't be a bad shout, as it's fairly close to the Central London gyms and dance studios that the show uses for training - unless 'bubbles' this year mean there's only a couple of training venues, and each couples are given timeslots to train in, and allow for cleaning before the next lot of hoofers turn up for their 90 minutes worth.

Back to It Takes Two. When the live show moved up to Elstree GL2 and had a series long struck set, I thought ITT would move with and use upstairs balcony area, as surely for cost reasons piggy backing off the main show set (even with the scaled back lighting needed) would be more cost effective, rather than going to the expense of hiring another smaller Central-ish London studio (with crew) for the spin off show.

Yes, doubling up with the Clauditorium would make alot of sense.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

That's a good idea - actually it correlates with some rehearsal photos I saw...

Having watched some of the 'Best Of' specials I've noticed in the older clips compared to where SCD is filmed now at the GL stage in Elstree how restricted they were at TVC

Television Centre's largest studio was and still is Studio TC1, at 10,800 Sq Ft, whereas George Lucas Stage 2 is over 15,000 Sq Ft. That is the big difference.

Also back at Television Centre, Strictly also used other studios there including TC8 (now demolished) especially when in November Children in Need used TC1 and kicked Strictly out.
