how to make a good living through dance Go for some funding! Have you thought about applying for funding via bodies such as Sportivate? Sportivate are especially keen to support 14-25 year olds to get active – check out their website – contact your local council and speak to the sports team as to how they can help

 

 

support for dance teachers Get busy online – check out where others are featuring their classes and events and see where you can feature yours. Places like netmums, whatson and get active website are all usually free to feature – list your classes and events everywhere that you can

 

 

support for dance teachers Start blogging – write about why dance and fitness is good for you, the benefits, how it makes you feel, why your classes are amazing – it all helps with seo (search engine optimisation and being found on google) so make sure you get your keywords in there, i.e. dance classes in Hertfordshire for instance. Blogging also gives you valuable material to email out to your database that you’ve built ;)

 

 

FREE VOUCHER Introduce loyalty cards – we all love a treat, so why not create some loyalty cards – especially for your adult customers – buy 5 classes and get 1 free etc. And for the kids, we have stickers to collect – collect all 8 stickers and get a Pop-It’s badge (again, there are 8 badges to collect)

 

 

Love to dance Value your customers – when was the last time you sent them a thank you email? Perhaps it’s time to send out an email thanking them for joining you and let them know what you have in store for them in the next term -i.e. “Thanks for Popdancing with us – we have some cracking routines coming up for you, we have MJ’s Thriller for Halloween, it’s going to be great fun – why not bring a friend to learn the routine with you? We have a 2 for 1 offer coming your way on your friend’s first class” etc.

 

 

tips on running a dance business

 

Ask your customers what they want – perhaps send out a short survey (surveymonkey) or ask them if there are any favourites they want to do next term
