DANCE STUDIO BY DESIGN METHOD A NEW APPROACH TO DANCE EDUCATION
Our programs utilize the “backwards by design” methodology, a practice many millennial parents prefer. Skill set rubrics created for specific age groups that answer the parental question “what will my child learn this year”. Each program is designed to help facilities increase enrollment, offer an alternative or addition to dance competitions, and a safe space for instructor camaraderie.
Members of DANCE STUDIO UNION receive a SPECIAL EDITION of the Dance Teacher’s Notebook PK-Grade 2, filled with ideas on creating and managing 10-week sessions, including year-round enrollment marketing, EXPECTATIONS For Dance Frameworks®, and Mini-Vents® Recitals for age 8 & Under.
