Dance Studio Business Plan and Growth Consultants

Congratulations

If you are either starting your own dance studio or you are a current owner, manager or employee of a ballroom dance studio; Congratulations!

Those of us who are “lifers” do everything we can to be involved in the Ballroom Dancing scene, including that of seeking to try and make it a career. Having your own ballroom dance studio becomes the dream achievement of most dancers. Most of us however learn very quickly that it becomes a nightmare to work in this industry and actually get paid enough to stay in it. Most of us as dance professionals have experienced that moment where you have to choose between paying an overdue bill and that sorely needed pair of dance shoes. I can’t tell you how many times I have heard studio owners and managers say they now have to go back to the rat race of the working world.

Owning your own studio is a real professional career so it takes real effort. If you have studied any amount of dance education you have seen how much work just the dancing takes, now add, teaching, human resources, budgeting, marketing and you see how quickly one gets overwhelmed. Running a ballroom dance studio is opening your own business. Except in this specific industry finding any help and training on how to do this is nearly impossible let alone quality help.

The Ballroom Dance School consulting focuses on three major areas.
