Closing down your belly dance class

What to do when you have to close a class

There are a number of reasons why you might have to close down a belly dance class. Perhaps you are moving to a new area, or your job or family commitments have increased. It may be that your love of belly dance is fading, or your love for another style is growing. In some areas Belly Dance is seeing a resurgence and classes are full to bursting. Sadly, in some other areas, enrollment is right down, and teachers are finding it hard to make enough money to cover their room hire.

In this workshop we are going to talk about how to make the hard decision to close a class.

I hope that this never happens to you, but if it does, these are some practical steps to take.
