Hi, I’m Clint!

My name is Clint Salter and I’m the industry’s leading expert in dance studio growth (their words, not mine). I’m probably not too different from you! I started my dance studio because I was a passionate dance teacher and I loved children (still do). But I had absolutely NO IDEA how to run a business.

I was wearing way too many hats and most days I would just cross my fingers and pray that nothing would go horribly wrong. I didn’t have time to even think about creating a plan or strategy to grow my business because I was struggling to keep my studio afloat and make ends meet.

Sound familiar?

It was challenging to say the least, but eventually my mentor and I cracked the code on running a successful dance studio.

DSOA – SAI sales page - Clint-02

In just 12 months we went from 30 students in a community hall to hundreds of students, classes at capacity and multiple revenue streams in place.

Fast forward 8 years, and I’ve gone from running my own thriving dance studio to empowering studio owners to create the same success, abundance and fulfillment in their lives and businesses that I did (minus the costly trial and error process I experienced along the way). My team and I have impacted over 35,000+ dance studio owners’ lives through our programs, podcasts, newsletters, trainings and live events all over the world.

We have poured our heart and soul into providing the highest caliber of expert coaching, hands-on mentorship, personalized accountability and continuous support out there today for dance studio owners. And we’ve packaged it all up into the transformational crown jewel we call the Inner Circle.

FALL BACK IN LOVE WITH YOUR STUDIO

We’ve designed the entire Inner Circle program to help you do one thing, and one thing only... 

Eliminate overwhelm and get back to the reason you started your studio in the first place: to make a real difference in your students’ lives every single day. 

Which is why we start with the #1 thing that stresses most studio owners out: their financial numbers and cashflow. When you join the Inner Circle, you’ll analyze your studio’s finances, marketing, operations and leadership like never before.

DSOA-–-Hero

It’s like business school, but way more fun and specifically tailored to Dance Studio Owners!

You’ll get unlimited access to dozens of proven, plug-and-play templates and systems to fill gaps you didn’t even know existed. Our world-class coaches will help you map out a crystal clear strategic vision that’s 100% unique and tailored to your specific business goals and definition of “success.” And with personal check-ins, fun contests and regular coaching calls, you’ll have all the accountability, support and motivation you need to reach those goals.  

You’ll also get 24/7 access to a collaborative community of growth-oriented studio owners who are teaming with innovative ideas and feedback. Plus continuous training and education from world-renowned industry experts to encourage and inspire you to stay ahead of the curve and the competition. 

Ready to jump out of bed excited to get to your studio every morning?

I WANT YOU TO TAKE A MOMENT AND IMAGINE...

Imagine leaving your studio behind and going on an extended vacation knowing with 100% certainty that your studio is not only functioning, but actually growing while you’re away. 

Imagine leading a team you love and trust completely, where every single member of that team is in total alignment with your values and vision. 

Imagine attracting, enrolling and retaining more students and serving those students and your community in creative, exciting and impactful ways.

Imagine opening up new revenue streams, expanding your empire and becoming the strong, confident leader you were born to be.

Imagine never feeling alone in your studio journey or having to wonder “Who should I ask about this?” again because you’ve got a tribe that has your back. 

THAT’S WHAT LIFE LOOKS LIKE AFTER THE INNER CIRCLE

COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITY & TRANSFORMATIVE EVENTS

ProgramIconsIC-includes-9

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 Studio Growth Coaching Team and the Inner Circle family.

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 your first six weeks you will be placed into one of our squads (between 8-10 studio owners). Our Squad program gives you the ability to tap into a group of 8-10 fellow Inner Circle members who can offer you direction based on their experiences. Your Squad is designed to meet your unique needs and help you reach new levels of success both personally and professionally. Held monthly online, Squad sessions allow you to dig deep and get the answers you need in a safe and non-judgmental environment.

ProgramIconsIC-includes-7
ProgramIconsIC-includes-5

LIFE CHANGING IN PERSON & VIRTUAL RETREATS

As an Inner Circle Member, you get the rare opportunity to attend live events we host throughout the year in the USA & Australia.

Twice each year, we host exclusive live retreats (two are live retreats in the USA in addition to two virtual retreats held online) because nothing beats a live event for jumpstarting your growth and making connections. These events are designed to accelerate growth, and we’ve created them to be genuinely life-changing.

The structure combines expert presentations on specific topics, live member “hot seats” where you’ll receive detailed feedback on your business, plus world-class guest speakers that you won’t get access to anywhere else.

The reason why our members will be so open, honest and giving is these retreats are not shared anywhere. The magic we create in the room is just for us! In fact, each Inner Circle member will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement. This is a safe space for you to get your biggest challenges, issues and opportunities out on the table.

CRYSTAL CLEAR STRATEGIC VISION & COACHING

90 Day Planning Sessions

People often ask us how our Inner Circle members are achieving big results through our mentoring. Part of that secret sauce is our 90 day planning sessions.

Each quarter we work through our signature 90 day plan with our members. These happen live and each member is required to send in their plans so the mentoring team can track your progress during the following months. These sessions throughout the year are powerful and give you the clarity, direction and focus you need to achieve your business growth goals.

IC-includes-14-v2
IC-includes-6-v2

Ask Clint Anything Calls

A few times per month you’ll have direct access to ask Clint anything you like during his Office Hours sessions. Nothing is off limits and Clint won’t leave the call until he has you unstuck, through your challenge, or equipped with the resources you need to tackle your next big goal.

Weekly Group Coaching Calls

Our group calls are where the rubber meets the road.

And If you’re stuck during implementation … we are there for you. 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-includes-4-v3

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.

When you join the Inner Circle, my team and I 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?

THE INNER CIRCLE ISN’T FOR EVERYONE

BECAUSE THIS IS OUR HIGHEST LEVEL PROGRAM AND CROWN JEWEL, YOU MUST QUALIFY TO BE A MEMBER

THE INNER CIRCLE IS RIGHT FOR YOU IF:

  • You’re a growth-oriented studio owner with at least 100 students OR $150K in annual revenue.
  • You’re ready and willing to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty working ON your business (not just IN it).
  • You’re not afraid to raise your hand, offer meaningful contributions and cheer on other members in our tight-knit Inner Circle community.
  • You are committed to learning, growing and continuing your own education by attending retreats and engaging in our member coaching experience.

If you’re saying “Hey! I check ALL those boxes,” then I encourage you to join the waitlist because spots go FAST!

dsoa-imgnew-3

THE INNER CIRCLE IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU IF:

  • You’re a studio owner with fewer than 100 students OR less than $150K in annual revenue. (Check out our Studio Success Formula or come back when you hit that mark!) 
  • You’re not ready or willing to devote a significant amount of time and effort to the program. That means doing your best to make it to our live or virtual retreats, showing up for coaching calls and participating in the Inner Circle community in a meaningful way.  
  • You’re a catty, non-collaborative or chronically shy type.
  • You are purely in it for the money and care more about your bottom line than the value you deliver to your students and community. 

WHAT’S THE INVESTMENT?

ipad-mockup-1

The Inner Circle is the highest caliber of expert coaching, hands-on mentorship, personalized accountability and continuous support out there today for dance studio owners. And as you might imagine, a program this transformative and comprehensive is not going to fit everyone’s budget. 

We do offer monthly payment options and discounts if you pay for your first year in advance. But to be perfectly honest, if price is your first question — there’s a good chance the Inner Circle is not the best fit for you. 

Once your application is accepted, we’ll discuss the investment with you on our ‘right fit’ call.

Remember, when you become an Inner Circle member you get:

  • LIFE CHANGING IN PERSON & VIRTUAL RETREATS

 

CRYSTAL CLEAR STRATEGIC VISION & COACHING

  • 90-DAY PLANNING SESSIONS
  • ASK CLINT ANYTHING CALLS
  • WEEKLY GROUP COACHING CALLS

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

Group 2-1

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. I thought about MY dream group when I created this program; what I wished I had while I was building my dance business. I know that there’s nothing out there that compares because I searched for it for years.

This program doesn't just change members' businesses

THE INNER CIRCLE TRANSFORMS LIVES AND STUDIOS

And that's priceless.

would you be worried about the investment if you knew you could get results like these?

Here’s how to

apply

STEP 1

Add your name to the waitlist and we'll notify you when a spot opens up, so you can be first in line to apply.

STEP 2

When the doors to the Inner Circle officially open, you'll be sent an application via email. Once you complete your application, you will be able to book a time to speak with us on the phone so we can see if the Inner Circle is the right fit for you and your studio. We will discuss the financial investment on that call as well. 

STILL HAVE QUESTIONS?

You can email hello@dsoa.com with any additional questions you have about the Inner Circle. But if you’re interested, I strongly suggest you go ahead and join the waitlist now. Space is extremely limited and I don’t want you to miss out on the opportunity to join this world class coaching program for Dance Studio Owners.

If your application is accepted, you’ll have the opportunity to get all your questions answered privately on a phone call with one of our staff members. They will happily discuss your unique situation and advise you on whether this program will be the right fit for you.

We are looking forward to reviewing your application and working alongside you to build the studio of your dreams! 

To your success,
