Ballet is a very popular form of dance within the United States. This is especially true among people that have young children and want them to engage in an athletic activity. As such, ballet schools are popular afterschool activities and summer activities for parents of young children as well as teenagers. These businesses either operate exclusively as a ballet school or as a dance studio. One of the nice things about these businesses is that they generate highly predictable streams of revenue on a monthly basis from the students that they have enrolled in their locations. The startup cost associated with the new ballet school are very minimal and they can be started for as little as $10,000 as much is $50,000 depending on the location. There are not many components as it relates to furniture, fixtures, and equipment is needed in order to develop these businesses. Competition in most markets is usually relatively modest among schools that operate solely in a ballet teaching capacity.

Given the low start up costs associated with these businesses, most financial institutions will provide a working capital one credit to finance the ongoing early expenses of the business while the owner is establishing a brand name for the company. Of course, a ballet school business plan is going to be required. As with all business planning documents, this should feature a three year profit and loss statement, cash flow analysis, balance sheet, breakeven analysis, and business ratios page. As it relates to industry research, ballet schools which are part of the overall dance studio market generally about $4 billion your revenue among 75,000 different locations. A thorough demographic analysis should be developed as well in order to ensure that people can very quickly find the business. This demographic analysis will be used in conjunction with the company’s marketing plan. This take a look at annual household income, percentage of families had to have children under the age of ten, percentage of families that have children under the age of 18, and the amount of money that is spent each year on each child’s recreational activities. A competitive analysis is typically included as well in order to ensure that the ballet school is not opening their first location in a market that is heavily oversaturated. Ballet schools tend to do well in more affluent areas.

A ballet school SWOT analysis is typically produced as well in order to showcase the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats that are associated with these businesses. As it relates to strengths, the low operating expenses and highly recurring streams revenue allow these businesses to reach profitability very quickly. There is usually only a handful of other ballet schools within any given market, and a strong competitive advantage can be had if the owner operator is a highly skilled ballet dance instructor.

For weaknesses, ballet schools do have modest operating expenses that need to be satisfied on a monthly basis. Additionally, the teaching of ballet is not a necessity and as such during a prolonged or major economic recession the revenues of these businesses can decline.

As it relates to opportunities, ballet schools are able to expand by hiring additional teachers as each class reaches 100% capacity. Additionally, many ballet schools will seek to establish additional locations once their first location has reached its maximum profitability.

For threats, there is nothing about this business is going to change moving forward. Ballet has been around for hundreds of years and people can continue to want to practice this form of dance at any given time.

A ballet school marketing plan is typically developed in conjunction with both the business plan and SWOT analysis. Foremost, most ballet instructors will immediately develop ongoing relationships with elementary school teachers and guidance counselors as well as on the middle school and high school level. This will provide a substantial number of referrals at the onset of operations especially to parents that want to enroll their children in exciting afterschool activities. This is usually the quickest way that most of these businesses reach their near 100% capacity within the first two years of operation. Many ballet schools will also distribute a small number of flyers and mailers to the general population in order to inform them of the grand opening. While this is expensive, it is important for establishing the brand name of the business of developing the early revenues for the company.

An online platform is also needed in order to have people find the business very quickly. Almost all people now use the Internet to find specialized local businesses, and by maintaining an expansive online presence the ballet school be in a strong position to have their courses fill up quickly. In fact, many ballet schools will typically have e-commerce functionality embedded into their websites in order to ensure that they can very quickly have students enrolled at the onset of operations. This website can be listed among all major search engines, and a search engine optimization firm can be hired in order to ensure that these businesses rank well when they are searched for on a localized basis. A presence on social media is very much warranted for this type of business as well as parents of children that are enrolled in the ballet school will break only post photos of activities. These photos can then be linked back to the ballet schools social media pages on platforms such as FaceBook, Twitter, and Instagram. If the ballet instructor or owner-operator is well known within the industry, it may be beneficial to post videos of performances directly to the company’s website and social media pages as well.

Ballet is a very graceful form of dance, and many people are going to continue to want to practice this art form. Many parents see their children’s enrollment in a ballet school as part of their overall development, and even during times of economic recession will continue to want to have their children enrolled in these classes. These businesses can reach profitability very quickly, and they can be a lucrative small business opportunity for a qualified dance instructor.
