A dance studio can provide income as a part-time business or quickly grow into a larger private enterprise. Success is closely tied to the efficient administration of the business and a long-standing personal relationship with the surrounding community. There are various styles of dance studios, each of which can be tailored easily to the demands of the customer base or to the creative intent of the proprietor. Good interpersonal communication and efficient organization are the backbone of such a community-oriented business. The Minor in Dance Studio Administration will provide students with the necessary education, preparation, and confidence to take steps in the direction of private ownership. The transferable skills acquired with this minor are in alignment with the University's mission to enrich the world through scholarship, artistic expression, community engagement, and entrepreneurship.
