It started small, with just 30 students. Five years later it was operating six days a week with a few hundred students and classes running at capacity. They had built a booming business—and he was only 21. Around that time, he decided to sell his half of the studio to his partner as he prepared to start working at the top celebrity agency in Australia managing some of the biggest names in television and media.
Over the next five years, Clint was responsible for pitching ideas and securing commercial endorsements, licensing, publishing, television, radio and speaking deals for his stable of high–‐profile clients. During this time he also created DanceLife, Australia’s largest community for dancers and performers which scored him the award Top 30 Entrepreneurs Under 30 from Anthill Magazine. In four years, DanceLife became Australia’s bible of all things dance: an online resource for dancers, a large dance competition and a learn– to–‐dance program for primary and high schools. Clint sold DanceLife after four years to take an opportunity to be the Touring Manager for the musical “Jersey Boys,” where he travelled internationally while managing a team of 56 people.
Eventually, Clint decided he wanted to share the knowledge he’d accumulated with other dance studio owners. He wanted to help them learn how to create a thriving, profitable studio. Clint is the Founder of the Dance Studio Owners Association and Studio Success Formula, the Business School for Dance Studio Owners where he offers mentoring and online training programs to help studio owners turn their passion for dance into a profitable business that makes a big difference in the lives of their dance families.
