PRAISE FOR DBM & EDIE
From Studio Owners Just Like You!
What a wonderful experience your course was! You covered a lot of what I hadn’t thought of, things that if I would have known before starting out that I would have done differently. It was a great learning experience and I will definitely utilize all of the knowledge that was given for my company and encourage other instructors to take your course as well! I would definitely recommend this course to all of my fellow instructors!J.C.
You certainly gave me great insight on how to improve how I teach my classes & how I conduct my business back in Atlanta. It was also great to meet other instructors & to have the opportunity to network with other dance studio owners all over the U.S.S.C.
I felt that your stories told was the most important part. They were a great help in understanding the business side as a dance instructor, as well as the experiences that went on in getting to where you have become today. Another thing that I felt was most important – BLUE TAPE! I will attend another Instructors Training, in fact, I already have a few that are wanting to go to the next Instructors Training!A.A.
It was the best investment I had made in a long time. Now I need to continue and learn more. what is next in your program?J.R.
I am a professor for Marketing & Operations Management at a University in Mumbai, India, so I do understand Business Management. The specific examples relating to the dance industry you have shared from your experience have made understanding the concepts very easy.”C.C.
The amount of new material is incredible I have been through the DBM twice in a six month period. The review of material presented from the first time I took the DBM was priceless. If you have not taken this course, you are missing out on a “golden” opportunity.
I am reenergized and personally very satisfied with myself for taking the DBM twice. It was well worth the time to help keep me better informed and remind me on the plethora of ways to grow my business, where the students are, how to retain the students, and how to continuously make money.
I love the idea that we are more than dance instructors and that we teach more than moves and patterns. We also teach personal development and life lessons.

Best money I’ve ever spent on business education. Edie’s Dance Business Management course is a must for any dance school or dance school in-the-making. It outlines a smart, logical, efficient system – one based on several years peering behind the curtains of successful dance schools worldwide – for running a dance school.

You saved me YEARS of trying to figure things out.
The BBS coupled with DBM is the ultimate cheat sheet! Years of attending congresses, collecting pieces of information, struggling to find quality instructors is no longer necessary to achieve the level of understanding I desire

For me the financial information was most important. Thank you so much, Edie! This is exactly what I wanted. I loved every minute of it. If the class had been half as long I would have felt like I got my money’s worth. This is a great deal! I am extremely excited to implement all of your ideas in my Swing dance classes and privates. Exactly what I needed. It’s so great getting this kind of information from someone who has been in the biz for so long. I really enjoyed all of the details about how you approach teaching classes, classroom management, privates, and marketing.
I was surprised that I was able to stay awake at such an early hour and for so long. I am very serious when I tell you that that is extremely unusual for me (especially in work meetings). I loved the stories and the content.
I like how specific you were about finances, training apprentices, and marketing, among other things. I liked all of the personal stuff – particularly about not being worried about competition, not badmouthing other people, and also having balance in your personal life.
I am amazed to learn that I can not only teach dance and live but it sounds like I can actually make a good living. It was fascinating. I plan to take the course again. So helpful!

Incredible. I learned more from this two day webinar than I did in semesters of Business Courses at the University of Northern Colorado, Northern Arizona University, The University of Phoenix, and Adams State College COMBINED.

The course was a steal at that price. So much information! I’m going to spend years digesting it all. Due to your vast experience in both the business realm and worldwide Salsa scene over many years, you have developed a truly remarkable dance specific business management course. The amount of information and wisdom that you impart during the DBM course is staggering. I have danced for quite a few years, but have always felt impaired at having an insufficient amount of business knowledge and marketing strategy required in order to turn my dance skills into a successful teaching career. After the DBM course, I feel empowered with the understanding and tools necessary to make this happen. I will be referring back to this course for years to come as I pioneer my dance future.
Edie, through your stories, tips, lectures, and presentation manner, I found all the material concise and detailed. It was easy to follow and understand. You are very personable, entertaining, and approachable. Thank you for helping me feel close despite the distance that actually exists between us.
There is just so much information. I will be digesting this information for years. I will need to study and take the time to review and really internalize what we have covered. The topics and quality of training are easily a 10 out of 5.
You made it soooooo much more accessible. Even just offering information on where to go for help was worth the price of the entire class!
For me, it was the bit about finding inspirational and influential people. I guess it is because this part comes naturally for me anyway. It is what drove me to take your training since you are one of the people that influenced my Salsa career from Day One. Finding others that inspire me is easy. I understand that constantly being inspired and listening to great thinkers / entrepreneurs / successful business professionals is extremely important. I plan to go back and listen to some of the speakers that you have suggested.
A University course is where this would TRULY SHINE. There is just so much information. Each section could be a week. With more time, each topic can be given a deeper focus. In a college course, instead of talking about designing a website, actually design one. Come up with trademark ideas. Actually implement some of the marketing ideas that we brainstormed. SO much potential here. Had this actually existed when I was in college, I think it would have easily been my favorite course…Perhaps most practical to my life too!

It has been awesome ever since… Hello Edie, 5 years ago I went to a training session with you in Miami. It has been awesome ever since and now we would like the next level of training for BBS. My wife and I both are full time instructors for our own company CHARLOTTE SALSA. One of the most respected Salsa Schools in NC! We want to continue growing and expanding making sure we do it the right way.Please let us know where will you be and how can we sign up for your trainings. Regards,

It is a PhD in Business Management in a 24-hour format. The DBM was a supreme wealth of information on every aspect of the dance business from development, administration, marketing, performances, congresses and event planning, travelling, coaching, training, etc. The DBM principals can encompass not only the dance business for independent instructors and studio owners, but also apply to every other type of business.

I haven’t been at my studio for 4 months and Salsa Classes are at a 53% increase in students. The methods your DBM taught about leverage and looking for the right type of person to put in place has been a true relief and a boat load of fun from the student stand point!

After your course I feel like I know exactly what to do. I felt so inspired as you were going through the different topics.And already after the first session my brain was so overcrowded with endless ideas and excitement that I could not sleep. And the excitement has raised session after session. Thank you very much for your remarkably precious teaching.

Just one hour into the course and I knew it was going to be so helpful to, not only to my business, but also to my outlook of my business. I returned home with a burning passion to implement so many new ideas. I want to thank you for being the amazing person you are. You shared, informed, and lit up a few light bulbs in that room over the 2 days. The great part is that you did it with a down to earth, humble, humorous and straightforward approach. I can see now why you [Edie] are so sought after!R.G.
OUTSTANDING! PHENOMENAL! LIFE ALTERING! I’d attended two of your classes prior to this (DBM and White Belt Certification) next level of certification. I had my chair upright, seatbelt buckled and my tray table stowed in the locked and upright position and still I wasn’t prepared for the level of instruction and intensity of these courses.A.D.
The DBM is a PhD in Business Management in a 24-hour format.

It was amazing! I learned so much and you are amazing at what you do! It was the best time and money investment I’ve ever made! Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with us 🙂 Wow! It’s very hard just to pick one since a lot of information [Edie] covered was amazing and mind blowing. I really enjoyed learning about unique teaching methods.A.M.
I am SO ENJOYING the DBM!! This has been such a fantastic course and I am so excited to begin implementing what we are learning!! I am so excited to begin this transition and am absolutely thrilled to be a part of the BBS!! This is awesome!! The DBM has been so full of awesome info (not to mention fun!!:)) that in a way it has been like a suspenseful movie where you don’t want to miss even one minute!!C.P.

Ever since DBM, my classes have never been the same, it’s only better. I just want to thank you [Edie] for your help and advice. And today my wife and I will be performing at the SLC Salsa Congress, we’re very excited because we will also be teaching a “Tango Salsa” workshop. That is what we will be performing as well. I remember you telling us to always be original and different.W. & R.

The DBM and Black Belt System training that I have received to date is the most comprehensive training programmes that I have ever seen. The Black Belt Dance system of delivering partner dance content, leading classes and operating a dance business is incredibly logical and smart. I firmly believe that anyone who follows the system will enjoy success in their dance career or business. What an incredible experience to be trained by one of the world’s most famous Salseras and a living legend of Latin dance!J.Q.H
Still unsure if you’re ready for the full course?
