This past Monday, we hosted our weekly #LetsTalkDance Tweetchat, at our new time, 10-11 pm EST, and the topic of discussion was dance studio business and marketing. We discussed everything from, what it takes to run a successful dance studio, and what we look for when choosing a dance studio, to the most common ways people learn about a dance studio. It was an incredible discussion with a ton of dancers, dance teachers, dance studio owners, and dance administrators, and there was a lot of valuable feedback shared.
The discussion was so good, that I felt it was necessary to share some of it with you, here on our blog. The best way to be a part of the discussion however, is to join our weekly Let’s Talk Dance Tweetchat, every Monday night, 10-11 pm EST.
Here are the questions that were asked during the Tweetchat, along with a few of the awesome responses to the questions:
Question 1:What are the 3 most important aspects of a successful dance studio?
@kinerenterprise: Great teaching staff, great customer service, & a dance studio owner who creates a positive atmosphere.
