DANC 370 Dance Studio Management

A course in Dance Studio Management will provide the student with a road map for the annual cycle of a dance studio as a sole proprietorship and other aspects of a community-oriented enterprise. The focus will be on the administrative portion of the operation as opposed to the artistic side. Etiquette, communication skills, procedures, financial and legal aspects of the dance studio business will be discussed in detail. Other applications such as drafting a business plan, developing policies, creating a competitive website, market research, completing tax forms and other hands-on exercises will be put into practice. The skills acquired in this course can be applied to other performing arts ventures. DANC 370 provides the student with transferable skills which reflect the University's mission to enrich the world through scholarship, artistic expression, community engagement, and entrepreneurship. This course is not recommended for first-year students.
