PROVEN STRATEGIES FOR GROWTH

IC What You Get Tiles V03-24

BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR DANCE STUDIOS

Think of our Studio Growth Curriculum as a university for Dance Studio Owners. Inside the Inner Circle we have 9 core subjects that are taught through videos and templates. Our members call them “plug and play” systems because all of the work is done for you.

We’ll provide a timeline mapping out which subjects we recommend you conquer and in the order you should complete them for maximum success. You can access the curriculum anytime through our Inner Circle membership portal.  You have the option to follow our recommended yearly plan, or go at your own pace! The choice is up to you.

PERSONALIZED SUPPORT & BUILT-IN ACCOUNTABILITY

8-Week onboarding

Your Inner Circle journey starts with a Welcome to the Family Call to give you a virtual tour of your Inner Circle Membership. From there, we provide a clear plan for your first 8 weeks so you can best leverage the Inner Circle's resources and begin to implement what you learn quickly, without feeling overwhelmed.

1:1 Annual Game Plan

After your Welcome to the Family Call, you will start your journey inside of our 8-week On-Ramp program. Each week will get you focused on the most important systems inside of the Inner Circle for getting results right away. At the end of your 8 weeks inside On-Ramp, we will schedule a 1:1 Annual Game Plan with your Studio Growth Coach. The goal of this 45-minute call is to map out your next 90 days with us and how we are going to achieve 3 big wins during that time. Brainstorming and strategizing your 3 big wins will be the primary focus for this call.

Some common 90-day wins include:

  • Hiring and training a new office manager
  • Reducing teaching hours by 40-60%
  • Increasing their take home wage
  • Spending 1-2 additional nights at home with their family
  • Re-launching their preschool dance department with a stand out brand
  • Putting in place a sustainable financial model that increases the profit margin by 5-10%
  • Finding 5 additional hours a week by implementing our planning systems
  • Boosting student retention by 5-15% month over month

You’ll walk away from this session with a clear vision and step-by-step execution plan for the next 90 days.

Priority Customer Service

Our Inner Circle members are our priority and to ensure we reply to any questions or enquiries, we have a dedicated email address for you. You won’t have to wait at the end of an email queue. Your emails go to the top of our list and will be answered quickly by our Member Success Team.

You can also utilize our exclusive Inner Circle SMS Customer Service, for convenient help from our team when you’re on the go!

Weekly Office Hours

Our group calls are where the rubber meets the road.

This is sacred time we dedicate to your specific questions and obstacles. Our ‘Office Hour’ sessions are where we tackle immediate issues like:

  • Your new student enrollment campaign bombs
  • You lose your best teacher
  • You have a parent causing havoc in the studio

We also celebrate your wins and highlight your successes to inspire and empower the group.

IC What You Get Tiles NEW V02-04

At least once a week, we host group coaching calls exclusively for Inner Circle members to deliver exclusive training sessions and help you with whatever questions or issues you might need help with that week.

You not only get access to our coaching staff on these calls, you also get to connect with other Inner Circle members who may have faced your exact challenge and have come out the other side a winner.

And, one of the most important aspects of the call is… ACCOUNTABILITY.

The group (including our coaches) will keep you on track to make sure you hit your targets.

Think of it like a “booster shot” for your quarterly plans. We are there to support you!

All calls will be recorded and placed in our Inner Circle member website so no need to worry if you miss one.

Unlimited Momentum Calls

While there is an abundance of support to help you achieve your goals inside the Inner Circle, there may be times when you need to have a one-on-one conversation with one of our mentors.

As an Inner Circle member* you have the opportunity to book as many 20-minute 1:1 Momentum Calls with our coaches as you need. Our members rarely use these calls due to the daily support we provide, but they are always there if you need them.

COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY & TRANSFORMATIVE EVENTS

IC What You Get Tiles NEW V02-12

ROUND THE CLOCK COMMUNITY SUPPORT

Inside the Inner Circle you’re always supported and have access to answers quickly when challenges arise. Our team will ensure that you stay on the right track and are knocking your goals out of the park.

To do that, you need checkpoints. You need to be accountable.  You need answers when times get tough. That’s why you’ll have access to an Inner Circle members-only private online group where you will receive round the clock support and feedback from our private global community. 

The information that will be shared in this group won’t be available anywhere else. It’s nothing like the DSOA Facebook Group. It’s really next level thinking and strategies.

SMALL GROUP SESSIONS #SQUADGOALS

Jim Rohn said in his famous quote: “You are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.” Well look out, because you’re about to become a world class CEO. Within the first 6 weeks, Inner Circle Members* will be placed into one of our squads (small groups of 8-10 studio owners). Our Squad program gives you the ability to utilize a close group of fellow Inner Circle members who can offer you direction based on their experiences. Held monthly online, Squad sessions allow you to dig deep and get the answers you need in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

Map Out Your Week Sessions

Each Monday, we go live to help you map out your goals for the week and get “unstuck.” You’ll have direct access to ask anything you like. Nothing is off limits and we won’t leave the call until everyone feels their questions have been answered and their challenges have been overcome. Our team will also make sure you leave equipped with the resources you need to tackle that week’s BIG goal.

30-day Monthly Planning Sessions

On the first Monday of every month, you’ll be invited to our 30-day Planning Session. Hosted by our Inner Circle leadership team, these sessions are designed to map out your goals for the next 30 days and how to get there.

Quarterly 90-day Planning Sessions

People often ask us how our Inner Circle members achieve such big results. Our 90-day Planning Sessions are a key ingredient in our massive studio success formula.

These happen live and on a quarterly basis. Each member is required to send in their plans so the mentoring team can track your progress during the following months. These powerful sessions throughout the year give you the clarity, direction and focus you need to achieve your business growth goals.

We’ve also introduced a brand new scoring system for tracking your progress quarter-to-quarter. This gives you a concrete idea of where your studio shines and where there’s room for improvement.

Eliminate all the guesswork about what to do next in your studio

When you join the Inner Circle, our coaches will work with you to map out a crystal clear strategic vision for the future of your studio. 

You’ll have the tools and resources to understand exactly where you are, the guidance and mentorship to figure out where you want to go and the accountability and support to actually get there. 

You’ll always be 10 steps ahead of the curve and the competition with ongoing education from world-renowned coaching from industry experts and coaching from me, personally!

And if you ever have a question, want feedback or just want to celebrate a big win (and trust me, you’ll have many) you’ve got 24/7 access to a group of like-minded, successful studio owners who are ready and willing to support and encourage you. 

Ready to go from constantly putting out fires to a passionate, innovative leader on fire?

READY FOR AN INCREDIBLE YEAR OF TRANFORMATIONAL CURRICULUM AND COACHING TO GROW YOUR STUDIO AND RECLAIM YOUR LIFE?!

The Inner Circle was built by modeling the best coaching programs in the world and infusing the unique needs of the dance industry into those proven systems

The process has taken years and continues to evolve because we wanted this program to be like nothing else available to dance studio owners on the planet. Our team thought about their own dream group when while creating and iterating this program; what they wished they had while building their own dance businesses. We're confident that there’s nothing out there that compares because we've searched for it for years.

This program doesn't just change members' businesses
