The Dance Connection Business for Sale FAQ's
Number of students: 35-57 (definitely room for growth – This was a recreational dance studio focused on dance technique and community performance, however competition is very popular in the area, so I believe a competition dance studio model could draw more students and have more opportunity for growth, however a recreational model could work with the right social media and promotion, which is not my strength)
Other dance studios in the area: There are none in the immediate area, and only 2 within 20 miles in the neighboring cities of Kaufman and Athens.
Profits/Expenses: Please email Leslie at firstname.lastname@example.org for details
How long are you willing to stay on to help with the transition: Negotiable
Number of staff on my team: usually 3-4 including myself and my daughter (I usually taught the bulk of the classes, my daughter handled the front desk 3-6pm, and we hired 1-2 additional p/t teaching staff - one of which would be willing to stay on)
Latest schedule, fees, etc: Please See Dance Class Info link above for the Fall 2020 Schedule
Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment, sets, props, costumes, inventory: $10,000 (Negotiable)(includes updated database of 500+ contact emails, and pretty much everything you would need to start the business back up where I left off and make it your own. Three holiday shows complete with sets, props, costumes, tech notes, etc: 2018 The Nutcracker, 2017 Rudolf, and 2019 The Grinch – Note: for The Grinch production our motto was “Re-use, Recycle, and Re-purpose” so some costumes, sets, and props from Rudolf and The Nutcracker were re-used. All shows can accommodate more than the original cast numbers of 30-57 as many were cast in dual roles. We have quite a few other props, costumes, etc from original recital productions, and much more that is included if you want it. Please see photo link for details.
