Competition: A Fresh Perspective (Business Retreat)

Competition: A Fresh Perspective - July 8 (Business Owner and Teacher Retreat)

“At times, dance competition gets a bad rap. As a dancer who grew up in competition, taught students who compete and directed competitions for 24 years, I believe that when it’s done the right way and for the right reasons it is an invaluable life experience.” ~Rhee Gold

Dedicate a day to re-evaluating everything from why we compete to how we can improve the experience for EVERYONE involved. We’ll head into uncharted territories with a fresh perspective on how we structure our programs and make them more profitable while we maintain the educational, financial and less-stressful aspects.

Who can attend: Studio Owners, Office Managers and Teachers

From the moment the retreat begins you'll be among friends who are focused on being the best that they can be inside and outside of the studio. The DanceLife Retreat Center is a 7,000-square foot log and stone residence featuring a gorgeous studio and meeting space. It creates the perfect atmosphere to grow and study. The fully restored stone fireplaces, beautiful lodge décor, outstanding landscape and acres of pine trees create a sense of peace from the moment you arrive.
