Start a Dance Studio with Almost Zero Expenses
Dance lessons used to be popular among the wealthier folk, but now it is common to spot a dance studio on any corner. More people are becoming more conscious about their health and fitness, so dance is not just a skill to be learned but one that is used in the pursuit of a better, stronger body.
Dance is the preferred form of exercise for many people who would like to lose pounds because it is more enjoyable than, say, running. It is easier to stay with a program if that program is challenging but not too mind-numbing. A lot of people quit the gym after a few months, but if you throw in some dance lessons into the mix it will make your workouts more enjoyable.
Dance as a business
With all the health-conscious people looking to lose those extra pounds by doing an exercise they enjoy, it is a good time to start a dance instruction business. This is especially applicable to those who have experience in the field of dance. Dancers, dance instructors, and the like should look into this business opportunity.
How to start
You may start a small dance instruction class for little money, but if you would like to make your business more popular and successful you’ll have to invest more as time goes by. As they say, you have to spend money to make money.
You’ll need a location, preferably one that’s close to the business district in your area. However, a dance studio can be located anywhere reasonable these days because you can advertise online for a minimal cost or even for free (use Facebook to create a business page).
You may also initially invest in dance studio manager software to make your management duties easier. This kind of software will help you keep records more easily, schedule classes for every student, and keep tabs on the payment of fees. For small businesses, this kind of software is a must; you don’t even need an accountant to start.
If you are starting with almost zero budget, think about converting your garage or an extra room in your house that’s wide enough to be a dance studio. Eventually, you can move your business to a real studio. As for the rest of the things you need, such as a state-of-the-art sound system, save enough money to accommodate those needs.
