Kim Collins once said, “Strive for continuous improvement, instead of perfection.” Instead of focusing on making your dance studio perfect, which is unachievable, spend your energy on improvement, no matter how small those improvements may be. Here are five simple ways that you can improve your dance studio.
Does your studio have vision, goals and values? Without vision, goals, and values, you may be missing out on growth. Creating the vision, goals, and values will keep your studio and teachers grounded and focused, offering a better experience for your students.
Are you seeking out ways to put your studio out in the community? Look for local festivals and celebrations where your studio can offer a performance. People generally love seeing local talent, and this gives your dance students something to work toward. Also consider charity events, to show your place in the community.
Not every dance student is interested in competition, and only highlighting competitive students may scare some of these students and parents away. Offer these students fun, recreational options. Also consider offering recreational classes during earlier hours for stay at home parents with young children, or the homeschooling population.
If you’re feeling burnout, consider outsourcing some of those obligations part time. Hiring a virtual assistant can take marketing, social media, and event planning tasks off your plate for just a few hours per week and may cost less than hiring a full-time employee.
One of the most effective ways to improve your business is to use Adada Software, which is specifically created for dance studios that offers online enrollment, payment, and registration, easy scheduling and communication, reports, time tracking, and security. Rather than piecing together different software products, try an all-in-one that saves you time and money.
Regardless of the number of students your dance studio serves, small steps toward improvement help create a fun experience for your students and a grounded, function, thriving studio to support them. Seeking improvement, not perfection, will keep your studio growing for years to come.
