This past year has been challenging for dance studios to put it extremely lightly. From learning how to teach kids of all ages over Zoom, to figuring out if and how you can have a safe version of a recital to give your students closure, to re-opening safely with ever-changing guidelines that haven’t always been geared to our industry. Last summer, our studio was thankfully able to hold summer camps and classes while also debuting our new safety measures and pandemic guidelines. We learned a ton about what worked and what didn’t, and in the process created a great way for other studios to increase their revenue during the summer without having to put a lot of work into the “how” of it all.
While summer programs can easily be the lifeline for a studio’s “off-season” finances, all of that summer fun can also be leveraged into an influx of new students for the fall. The opportunity to give prospective students and parents a window into how it feels to be a part of your studio is something you should be prepared to take full advantage of. Here are some ways to make this summer into an even better fall!
