Fitness & Dance

Whether you’re playing music across the gym floor, in the café or reception areas or using it in exercise and dance classes, you’ll usually need TheMusicLicence.

Music can be used in a variety of ways within your fitness and dance business.

By obtaining TheMusicLicence you will be able to play music legally and enjoy its benefits whilst ensuring that its creators are fairly rewarded for their work.

Benefits of TheMusicLicence

Music can be an important part of day-to-day life for many people, especially during their leisure time. Playing it for your members or customers could help to lift that experience, boost the mood and enhance the atmosphere across your brand.


Music has the power to put the rhythm into a reception, the jive into the gym or turn a class into a celebration. It can uplift, motivate and enable people to hit their personal high notes when we thought it was easier to give up.

Empower customers to tune into their workouts and get the most of their experience with TheMusicLicence!
