Spiegeltent hire

It was not always common to hire a spiegeltent. Originally, the first spiegeltent operators travelled from city to city. The operators earned their income by charging their guests, who were dancing to the music of a dance organ. After awhile, it became more common for the operators to hire out their spiegeltent.

The very moment a guest stepped on the dance floor, so-called ‘dance money’ was charged to them by the operators. Other than this, liquor provided the operators with a steady source of income. After awhile it was more common to only hire out a spiegeltent, so customers themselves could decide on the activities to organise in the spiegeltent. By hiring out their spiegeltent, the operator was no longer at risk of a big loss. It became very popular amongst artists and theatre producers to hire a spiegeltent.

By hiring out their spiegeltent, the owners of the spiegeltent changed their business model and stopped charging the guests ‘dance money’. Nowadays it is a common practice amongst spiegeltent operators to only hire out their spiegeltent.
