Do they really need the uniform?

Sorry I have forgotten my fees!

She went to a party – instead of the last exam rehearsal!

So and so quit and didn’t tell you!




You need more students to break even!

Flyers need to go out

The list is endless….

Did no-one tell you when you trained to be a teacher/dancer that if you owned your own studio you would also need to have a ridiculous amount of ‘other’ skills too….You can learn business, marketing, budget, cash flows and so on, the dance den can and WILL help you.  Rome wasn’t made in a day – so don’t stress, take it one step at a time.

From me to you after 18 successful years – YOU CAN DO THIS! And what you can’t – outsource! Get help – ask me of the fellow dance principals in the dance den – join our community - You don’t have to do this alone!
