Written by Lori Shecter

Profitboom# 1 HOLIDAY PARTIES:

Great chance for parents to drop the kids off and have a day or night to themselves:  Charges will depend on what you can get, but make sure you are making a PROFIT. Theme idea: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Valentines, St. Patrick’s – Try a picture day with Santa wearing holiday costume or clothing.  Good for the whole family.

#2 MOM’S MORNING/AFTERNOON OUT: 

Pick a 2 hour time block in the morning or afternoon where moms can drop their under 3’s off for two hours. Create a musical curriculum and video tape so mom is SURE to enroll her child in your dance studio when old enough!

#3 PARENTS DAY OFF:

5 hours of dance, fun, crafts and games.  Pull out your DANCE-IN-A-CAN curriculum and have it once a month for 5 hours.  Charge $30 per child for the day.

#4 DANCE SHOP:

Just supply the basics like slippers, tee shirts, leotards and tights.  Don’t have enough room? Try this fantastic rack that will fit easily in your lobby.  Still don’t have enough room? Sell the clothing through your website or School Empower!
