Gold Alliance: Who Are We?

STUDIO OWNERS FROM ACROSS THE U.S. AND CANADA who are ready to think bigger and stretch beyond their boundaries, surrounded by exceptional dance entrepreneurs striving to do the same. 

Those looking for a support and accountability team; eliminating the "I’m in this all by myself" feeling when dealing with the ups and downs of studio ownership.

Those ready to gain tremendous knowledge through the accumulated experience of the Gold Alliance leaders and mentors; it’s like having access to your own personal brain trust of like-minded studio owners.
