Freehold Award Winning Dance School & Fitness Studios
Location : West Midlands
Asking Price : £360,000
A rare opportunity to acquire a very well established and highly regarded dance school and fitness studio that has been successfully serving the region for almost 40 years.
This rather unique business provides a comprehensive range of dance and fitness classes to both adults and children that cover a range of disciplines. The studios have been equipped with the latest fixtures, fittings, visual aids and sound systems to enable the business to provide superb tuition in exceptional surroundings.
The business offers a full ballet school under the guidance of The Royal Academy Of Dance (RAD) and also offers a range of other disciplines including Latin ,Ballroom, Latin American, Salsa, Tango, Tap, Rock ‘n’ Roll, Modern, Freestyle, Jazz, Hip Hop and Musical Theatre. The business utilises The Associated Boards of Dance as the examining board for these disciplines as they are recognised by the BDQT (Board of Dance Quailifications & Training).
The studio also offers the ever popular Latin Inspired dance fitness programs including Zumba. There is huge scope to develop this side of the business further, should a new owner so require, as fitness based and performance based dance and non-dance routines are hugely popular and this represents an excellent area of future growth.
The business premises are freehold and represent a sound investment, being in first rate condition and ideally located on a High Street in a densely populated area with excellent accessibility, own car park on site and other parking nearby.
This is a key area of strength for the business. The business offers expert tuition from highly qualified and highly motivated tutors which makes the customer experience not only enjoyable, but also highly rewarding in terms of technical advancement. This level of tuition is backed up with the relevant certifications from the associations and memberships already mentioned as well as the International Dance Teachers Association membership.
This dedication to high quality delivery of the programs is further backed up with the numerous awards this dance school has received over the years.
