A dance studio manager usually runs the daily operations of a dance studio. A dance studio can be run independently or be part of a larger institution, such as a university, school for the arts, or performing arts center. If the studio is part of a dance program, the manager will usually be working with more than 100 dancers.
One thing you will have to do is train staff, review the staff to make sure they are performing well, and grow the program so that the program will be more successful. You would also initiate, create, update, and implement lesson plans for the program. Another thing you would also be doing as a dance studio manager is attending leadership meetings and running staff meetings. Since a lot of children will typically be in the program, you will have to talk to parents often. You will also probably have to teach classes, and you will have to set up class schedules. You will also need to know when to review, change, or delete classes. As a dance studio manager, you must also be available for local community performances.
The educational qualification is that you would usually have to be a bachelor’s degree in dance. The work is physical because you will be dancing. You would probably be most working indoors because dance studios and programs are usually located inside.
