We get where you're at, because we've been there.

The Inner Circle is the industry’s leading expert & brain trust in dance studio growth because we've been in your shoes. Our founder & CEO, Clint Salter, started his dance studio out of a passion for teaching dance a love for children (still true). But, at the time, he had absolutely NO IDEA how to run a business.

He was wearing way too many hats and most days would just cross his fingers and pray that nothing would go horribly wrong.

He didn’t have time to even think about creating a plan or strategy to grow the business because he was struggling to keep the studio afloat and make ends meet.

Sound familiar?

It was challenging to say the least, but eventually he cracked the code to running a successful dance studio...

Inner Circle Team Members

In just 12 months Clint's studio 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 -- the keys to Clint's studio transformation have been iterated into proven, done-for-you strategies that allow the Inner Circle to empower studio owners to create the same success, abundance and fulfillment in their lives and businesses (minus the costly trial and error process Clint experienced along the way). Our team has 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 cash flow. When you join the Inner Circle, you’ll analyze your studio’s finances, marketing, operations and leadership like never before.

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 teeming 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

BUSINESS SCHOOL FOR DANCE STUDIOS

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.

9-Week onboarding

Your Inner Circle journey starts with a Welcome to the Family Call with our Member Success Director to give you a virtual tour of your Inner Circle Membership. From there, we provide a clear plan for your first 9 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.

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.

30-day Monthly Planning Sessions

On the first Monday of every month, you’ll be invited to our 30-day Planning Session. Hosted by Clint, 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, 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.

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.
