I’m a mum of 2 amazing handsome boys (I am biased!), they are 6 and 9, so between the school run, I fit in work!
It IS hard, and it IS a juggling act, but any mum understands that keeping all the balls in the air is difficult.
My dance school was my first baby – so technically I have 3.
I started dancing at 3, led through the traditional exam structure of ballet, tap and modern.
Numerous competitions, shows and events, led me to college and then onto my BA Hons in Performing Arts.
After working abroad, I returned home to set up my dance school, forgoing the traditional (there were enough of them!) I started a non-exam, non-uniform based school, focusing on street and jazz dance.
I am a business woman at heart, I LOVE numbers! Not in the accountant way, in the creative way, break-evens, profit forecast, cash infusions, class numbers and costings! Numbers are key to business, just as they are in dance! Marketing is creative too, I have great fun with that!
In 2016 I did my post-grad in mentoring and entrepreneurial practice, got to the finals of an entrepreneur award and launched ‘child’ no 4 – The Dance Den. I am also a mentor for Business in Wales.
This is all REALLY from a place of experience – I literally have the t-shirt in every colour and then some!
The Dance Den www.thedanceden.co.uk is helping hundreds of dance school owners like you every day.
Don’t do this alone – you don’t need to!
