Kim Black is the Owner of Miss Kim’s in Burlington, North Carolina. She was selected as Dance Teacher Magazine's Dance Teacher of The Year in 2020 and is a Preschool Dance & Creative Movement presenter.

Kim opened her studio during the pandemic and while most instructors would be shaking in their boots, Kim was confident she could fill her space... and she did! Six months after opening her doors she had 400 dance students.

How did she do it?

She credits the strong support of the community and her positive attitude. Listen to this week's episode to hear more and learn her success tips and tricks!

As studio owners ourselves, we've been there. But, it's also very possible to be a happy owner of a thriving dance business that you love.
