The art of dance is probably a field that simply doesn't get enough recognition, a good example of that is so many schools everyone are getting rid of the arts to focus more on academics and sports. So, you might be a person that loves to dance, is good at it and would love to try and keep a part of the art alive by opening up a dance studio of your own. However, that can be a huge undertaking, one that you might not be able to afford to do. But, you can do so by opening up a dance school from your own home. Probably the easiest way to do that is to try and stick with one type of specialized dance. A good one that is still popular is Salsa. If you happen to be good at it then why not offer Salsa dance lessons from your own home?
A very important thing to remember when you are considering to offer Salsa dance lessons, make sure that you truly have mastered the dance, even if the students you get are not well trained in dancing, they still will be able to figure out when you don't know what you are doing.
You will need to find a space in your home to set up as your dance studio. You can use a garage or a basement for this type of space. No matter which spot you choose, you will need to set it up so that you and your students have plenty room to dance. You will also need to make it look like a dance studio for instance you will want mirrors, barre and you should consider a spring floor for dancing. You more than likely will want to hire a contractor for at least the flooring or if you know someone who is a handyman in order to get the work done. The equipment you will need can all be ordered online from companies that sell dance equipment.
Once you feel that your dance studio for your Salsa dance lessons is ready to go you will need to make sure to see if you need any licensing from the local government in your area. You also should create a unique name for your little home studio, one that will stand out and attract interest.
Don't forget to advertise your Salsa dance lessons studio by advertising in the newspaper, ask local businesses if you can put fliers up in their windows, make sure to ask other places such as stores, schools, libraries, community centers and the like if you can place your fliers where people can see them. Make sure that your ads include the price for your classes and all your contact information. Make sure to try and keep your prices down, especially when first starting out, there's a lot of competition out there.
