An executive coaching program for dance studio owners

Gold Alliance Group

Who are we?

We are studio leaders in our studios, communities and our success teams. Led by Rhee Gold and a team of executive mentors/coaches we strive to break our own boundaries in business and in life!

With group and 1-1 mentoring, goal-setting workshops, business school seminars, Alliance Summits, in-person retreats and more, we are focused on expanding our knowledge in all areas of dance education and business growth.

We know that there is not a one-size-fits-all model for studio success. Our training begins with the simple step of identifying each leader's unique objectives. Our mentors offer each member a distinctive path to writing a success story!

We thrive on sharing the life with a supportive peer group of savvy entreprenuers who become our support and accountability team; eliminating the I’m in this all by myself when making tough decisions and dealing with the ups and downs of studio ownership.
