"We have accomplished a lot! In the last two years, some in our industry have invested significantly in innovation, digitization and new products. But it has also become clear that the traditional dance school business model has come under a lot of pressure. However, we have good news: Completely new, complementary product ideas are helping us generate potential new revenue. A younger audience, which can be reached with "younger" communication channels and e.g. influencers*, loves new dance and movement styles. Similarly, the growing over-50 demographic is also more agile, body-conscious, and fun-loving.

Our personal contact with customers and our competence are our great strengths. Now we have to refresh our "classic models" with new approaches from the leisure industry (gastronomy, services, etc.) or through cooperations and lead to a good, individual business approach.

We need to communicate even more clearly how much and what good advice we offer - especially via social media platforms and digital channels. Our services are an experience that brings joy to life through movement and music. Let's make that transparent and communicate this joy.

Enjoy and be inspired while reading!"
