INTRO

Key metrics like class size, discount percentages and month-to-month income growth are all integral to the success of your dance studio. But without context, these numbers may leave you with more questions than answers.

  • Do I have the right class size to maximize tuition revenue?
  • Am I offering too many family and student discounts?
  • Should I consider adding more staff to my roster?

The list goes on.

In this report, we’ll share industry benchmarks to help you compare your studio’s performance against other dance studios from around the world. With this knowledge in hand, you’ll be able to identify opportunities for growth and where you should focus most of your attention.

On behalf of Jackrabbit Dance and our integration partners, thank you for reading the 2021 Jackrabbit Dance Benchmark Report.

DATA IS KEY

Key metrics like class size, discount percentages and month-to-month income growth are all integral to the success of your dance studio.

KEY FINDINGS

The 2021 Jackrabbit Benchmark Report was compiled using three consecutive years of data, analyzing over 9,000 youth activity centers that run their businesses on Jackrabbit’s cloud-based class management software. Analyzing this data in aggregate provides extensive operational insights. While Jackrabbit never shares client data without permission, it does share anonymized trend data that can serve as benchmarks for the industries it serves.

After compiling three years of data, a few trends in dance studio businesses emerged:

  • 01 | The count of families actively enrolled increased year over year with Jackrabbit system usage, establishing a clear correlation between enrollment growth and optimizing software adoption.
  • 02 | Studios that offer makeup policies can increase their profit margin by giving parents the ability to control their own absence and makeup schedules.
  • 03 | Since 2018, the target student age has increased from preschool to elementary-aged students between the ages of five and eight. In 2020, adult class enrollment increased by 28%.
  • 04 | Nearly 900,000 classes have been held in the last three years among Jackrabbit Dance clients with an average tuition cost of $122 per class, per month.
  • 05 | The typical US-based studio records five different employment types and pays, on average, $27 per hour (USD).
