Surviving Your Studio’s Hardest Times

Dance Studio Insider LIVE – With Special Guest, Angela Mannella!

“I think the biggest thing right now is just that Studio Owners are all feeling kind of alone and tired.”

These words from the owner of Moore Than Dance, Angela Mannella really packed a punch in this week’s episode of the Transform My Dance Studio podcast, as she reflected on the end of the last season, and put so perfectly into words how so many of us felt as our industry farewelled the rollercoaster that was 2020/2021.

If you’re nodding along thinking “yes, that’s exactly how I feel”, then listening to this powerful interview with Angela needs to be at the top of your to-do list this week.

  • The one thing that Angela implemented in her studio that has brought the most ”wow’ to her dance families and ensured they come back season after season (whether virtually or in person).
  • How she has leaned on her support network during her studio’s biggest challenges to feel less alone and tired (and best prepared for the 2021/2022 comeback).
  • Tips for managing overwhelm and burnout for studio owners who may be struggling with motivation and uncertainly about the season ahead.
