Yesterday is a day I will remember forever. We had an opportunity, took the risk, and hoped that our industry would come together in an intimate, collaborative setting to support each other, share ideas, and improve the dance studio industry at the inaugural Dance Exec Seminar.

It happened. It really happened.

Nearly 40 people from 5 different states, representing numerous studios and dance-affiliated corporate companies, gathered at the Renaissance Charlotte Suites for a day of discussion, inspiration, and collaboration.

 TutuTix was an amazing title sponsor–their service is impeccable and will only continue improving our dance industry. BalletBarreNone and Dance Competition Hub were amazing supporters, and, we were fortunate to have Curtain Call Costumes and Jackrabbit stop by to share information, too. Michelle Rogers, Glenna Wilson, Eileen Juric, and Jenny Griffes shared studio/teaching ideas, tips, and tools via topical discussions and panels.

I left feeling inspired, excited, amazed, and ready for more.
