But do you have the support and marketing skills you need?
We help dance teachers and somatic movement professionals like you succeed.
The Dance First Association 
supports you with the business and marketing side of your practice so you can focus on facilitating.
You may think that your training gave you all the tools you need to thrive in the somatic world. But really, when you decided to teach you went into business for yourself—and chances are that you weren't taught how to be an entrepreneur. 
So if you just learn from the leaders and leverage the most established platform in the business, you'll reap the rewards of a thriving practice and be capable of serving in a way that nourishes not only the people you serve, but you too!
Megha Says:
"Dance First is a lifesaver!"
My assistant is able to easily schedule our promotional posts directly on to the Conscious Dancer Facebook Page, allowing us to reach their entire audience. We're delighted with the service and feel very supported by Mark Metz and the Dance First Association. ~Megha-Nancy Buttenheim - Let Your Yoga Dance
