“I joined DSOA about a month ago. I've owned a dance studio for almost 20 years and I've been a part of many other "studio success" groups and programs. DSOA is without a doubt a cut above the others. Clint has information for studio owners that is fresh, up to date and easy to understand... and he tells you how to implement them. There are so many aspects to running a dance studio… but these trainings take you step by step. The customer service is outstanding. Every question or concern that I have had has been answered in a timely manner. The family atmosphere of DSOA is heartwarming and refreshing. If you want to take your Dance Studio to the next level... this is place to do it.”
“I've been a member of the group for a year and the knowledge I have gained has been well worth the cost. The frequent trainings available in different marketing strategies and business management have helped me bring my studio to the next level. In addition, the interaction between members is phenomenal! So much support and assistance is given and received. It's nice to feel a part of a community - we are all in this together.”
Our signature 12-week online training program will walk through the core elements of creating a solid business foundation, how to manage the finances in your studio, recruiting and retaining staff, attracting and enrolling students and how to scale your business so you can become the CEO of your dance studio! If you’re looking for a proven blueprint of how to get from where you are to building that studio you have always wanted, look no further.LEARN MORE

Clint and his team are quick to respond to any and all questions and there's tons of top-notch resources and information to continue learning and growing. Really ... a great program!”
Nancy Marsella Green

To be around all the other studio owners and talk about the same problems that we all face in such a supportive environment. If you’re thinking of joining the Inner Circle, absolutely don’t hesitate - as Studio Owners we spend 24/7 in the business with all the passion in the world, but it can be stressful. Inner Circle has taken that stress away and shown us how to live happy lives, and actually run a business well thanks to Clint’s advice and the wisdom from the experts he has brought to us.
Annette Hill, Steps to Stardom
I think I would have given up without Clint’s inspiration to put the right systems in place. The results have been incredible, and I know that everything that the Inner Circle has given can be implemented in my studio and make a huge difference. The group and support from everyone else have been amazing. Following Clint’s advice for my new year campaign, I had 158 new leads within a week! I’ve got more direction - I have my dream, and have started to put the steps in place to get there. I’m buzzing! I’ve got so many ideas and just can’t wait to keep implementing them.

Wow wow wow! I didn't think for a second that you would be able to top Day 1, but every single day was better than the last. I have no idea how you got these amazing minds all together for Dance Teachers Unite, but I can't thank you enough!
Feeling more on top of things and I am LOVING the Dance Teachers Unite master classes!!! I had my competition families spread door hangers all over our area, we made new business cards and posters to hang up on message boards AND I had my first meeting with my social media manager to take all of that off my plate and give me more time for ME and my family.
At the end of September we are at +90 students since June!!! I'm shocked and grateful and busy (but in the best kind of way). Thank you!
“Thank you so much for this summit. It has been so informative and inspiring for me! I have learned a lot and can't wait until I have time to implement some of what I've learned. I've been too busy watching to do implementation the past 10 days! My favorites that are coming to mind have been Kimberly Fitch on cleaning dances, Lisa Howell (of course), Ray Edwards and Tim Paige, but they've all been great and helpful.
I hope this won't be the last time you offer this!. I also hope that with these tools, I can grow my studio so I can afford to purchase some of the other things you offer! Thank you again!”
As a Dance Studio Owner it’s important you have the right policies and procedures in place when it comes to your students, parents, teachers and your recital/concert. After working with over 400 Studio Owners each year we have created three handbooks for you to use in your studio so that no rock goes unturned and to ensure everyone is on the same page (no scary surprises).LEARN MORE
“The Studio Handbooks from DSOA are an invaluable tool for any studio owner. Written in a positive and precise format, every teacher, parent and student will understand the expectations from you as the studio owner and will be happy that they part of such an incredibly organised team! Thanks to Clint and his team we are able to focus on our own strengths, safe in the knowledge that his team are focusing on theirs."
“Thank you Clint and Team for the Studio Handbooks! They have not only saved me a huge amount of time but also given me new ideas on how to communicate information and made me aware of certain policies/procedures I should have in place. So far I have adapted and used the Parent/Student Handbook and Faculty Handbook, and our families and staff have loved them particularly how user friendly they are. Thank you again for another great resource!”

As always - So much valuable content! I feel like I need to read the book at least another ten times to actually absorb it all!!
So many pages turned down to come back to and implement action - it certainly wasn't difficult making it to the end. Thank you Clint Salter for a fantastic resource
Not even halfway through the 12 retention strategies in the Chapter on retention and already my heart is racing... I can do these, I am inspired by these! Thank you Clint!!
I picked up the book 1.5 hrs ago and I'm on Chapter 4 now. I can't put it down! It is such an easy, interesting, and inspiring read. The best part is, Clint's writing keeps making me laugh at myself! It is so honest and makes you look at yourself and shows you the big picture. Thank you for writing such an engaging book! I'm excited to get through it and then go back and make my notes and implement everything. I also can't wait to go through the modules on SSF again, but with the book in hand this time. This is so great!
DSOA is a phenomenal resource and extremely beneficial investment that I will continue to make each year in efforts to grow my studio. I gain a ton of knowledge right at my fingertips both from the owner Clint Salter as well as the other members who are world-wide. How much better does it get than that?
Carrie Bohlmann, Virtuoso Performing Arts, USA
DSOA is such a terrific organization! So glad I joined this new 'family' ... They are here to offer great ideas (and how to implement them), support, encouragement, motivation and so much more! I'm already seeing great results & I cannot wait to see how much more my studio will grow!
Nancy Marcella Green, The Dance Emporium, USA
I was recommended to join DSOA by a dear friend. I am so glad I did. You need to surround yourself with successful people if you wish to raise your own bar and be successful. This group challenges me to try things that I need to learn to elevate my business. Money well spent
Tara Pickford, Sparks Dance Centre, Australia
DSOA is a fantastic community of like minded Studio Owners who are so willing to share their experiences. Owing a dance studio is not an easy task and being a member of DSOA is definitely a ticket to success!
Ryan Bickerton, Dance Stream Victoria, Australia
I love the group because I feel like I have a team now. It's great to have a group of people that understand the challenges Dance Studio Owners face in a unique business environment. I also have so many ideas of what I want to do to build my studio - and the group is helping me map that out, along with a wealth of other information.”
Dana, Ignite Dance Studios Inc, Canada
I used to think I wanted to run a dance school. It never occurred to me that that translated to running a business as well. The DSOA and SSF program have not only opened my business eyes but gotten me really excited about things I never thought I would be interested in. Things like revenue, retention, marketing and profits. They're not evil words, they're exciting concepts that enhance the experience of all my dancers even more.
Thank you Clint. As always, you are a constant source of enthusiasm and inspiration.
Natalie Stubbs, BDC Dance, Australia
I've been greatly inspired by the creative marketing strategies, business streamlining ideas, community of owners uniting together and Clint's enthusiasm for helping others achieve their goals.
Jodi, Relevé Studios, USA
I love that it's not just about the concepts. Clint gives you the tools and technology to put the concepts into action.
Stephanie, Children's Dance Theater & Prestige Dance Studio ,USA
The group is full of fresh ideas and new friends to share in my profession. I think no one fully understands a Dance Studio Owner unless you are or have been one :).
Stacey, Stacey's Dance Studio,USA
I love and appreciate all the wonderful information given by Clint Salter and everyone here. We always knew there was a great dance community but the DSOA has brought everyone together in such a great way. No one know what a dance teacher goes through except a dance teacher!
