I've been a Scottish Highland Dance teacher now for about 9 years.  Well, I was teaching before that, but have been certified for that long anyhow.  And before I had kids I had a fairly successful dance school running.  But then I got pregnant and had a few disagreements with parents over how much competition a 7 year old should be doing and it pretty much died out.  I've taught community ed and here and there independently over the last 6 years now, but nothing steady.  And when I've had independant students, they inevitably drop out because of something else (ball, cheer, etc) that they are involved in.

So here I am trying to get my dance school up and running again and I just don't know what to do or how to go about it!!  I've tried the community education route and had a few students that way, but I really want to get back into the competitive teaching again and just can't seem to drum up the students.

I've set up a website.  I've made brochures and flyers.  I have business cards.  I've posted around town and on line and anywhere else I can think.  I'm back to being active in regional things, but still.....

So my thoughts are recently on this topic....
