But it is the PEOPLE that make all the DIFFERENCE! I feel honoured to share your passion for this incredible industry.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Do you dream of starting your own dance business but just don’t know how? Or are you stuck wanting to grow but can’t seem to make progress?
Many of us in the DANCE INDUSTRY enter BUSINESS ‘accidentally’ because we just want to find a way to monetise doing what we LOVE! At first it doesn’t even seem like ‘WORK’. How can we be working when we’re having so much FUN? Inevitably though, the fun-factor can fade – especially when things get tough (like when a pandemic hits!!).
Chris Duncan knows the highs and lows of doing business in DANCE after a career spanning 35 years. As a teacher, choreographer and studio owner, then as an agent, publisher, event manager and producer, Chris has dedicated herself to providing as many opportunities as possible for the next generation of dancers to learn, grow and become incredible future professionals.
Now, Chris expands her mentoring role to help other passionate DANCEPRENEURS create their own dream enterprise and, in doing so, increase valuable work opportunities within the industry.
DANCEBOSS – From Start-up Enterprise to Dancepreneur covers all the major business pillars you need to know to avoid wasted time, energy, money and passion and fast-track your SUCCESS.
“Chris Duncan is a true force in the dance industry using her sharp business acumen and passionate heart to provide incredible opportunities for dancers.”
