Staffing can be one of the most difficult elements of operating a dance studio. Each staff member must subscribe to the culture and promote the landscape of your business. Staff should want to work for you instead of against you.

At the start of a new season, have a meeting and take time to remind your staff what your studio represents. Go over your policies, goals for the year, and reiterate the value and importance of each of your staff members. Stress that professionalism cannot be compromised.

Here are some resources from the Dance Exec that you will help you in your staff planning and organization for the season:
