Plans have been drawn up to convert a betting office in Burntwood into a dance studio.
The Lake School of Dance & Theatre Arts wants to make the changes to the store at 47-49 High Street, Chasetown.
Before being used as a betting shop, the site was home to a branch of The Midland Bank.
The new studio would feature two dance areas to allow youngsters to practice their routines.
In an application to Lichfield District Council, Beverley-Jane Lake said: “My school caters for children from toddler and pre-school age group, through
to professional level.
“Pupils are entered for International Dance Teachers Association grades and medal tests and enjoy the opportunity to perform in our productions in a professional theatre.”
She also said that it was hoped the venue could also be rented out to other community groups.
Residents can have their say on the proposals and view more details on the Lichfield District Council planning website.
