Wanting to make some changes after A-Troupe's loss at Absolute Dance Regionals, Kate decides to renovate the studio's east wing and create an entirely new studio. This studio is meant to replace A-Troupe as the central location of A-Troupe's rehearsals.
Studio 1 is solely used by the members and faculty of TNS East with minor exceptions until the merge between TNS East and West upon which it becomes open to all. In Season 6, The studio would not be in use anymore, So Emily and Michelle decided to let another studio rent it. 
The studio has clean grey floors with white ballet barres upon them. The general colour scheme of the room is light blue and pink. Images of ballerinas are seen atop the entrance to the studio's office. A small mirror is in the studio.
