Studio Connections presented by Inside Dance is as an all-new online LIVE collaborative conversation with mentors and leaders across the industry! Free to studio owners, directors and teachers, the goal is to create a partnership and powerful conversation to help unite us through shared ideas. With topics focused on studio growth, diversification, marketing and retention, and together with total dedication, Studio Connections is here to help dancers move mountains and accomplish their dreams.

In the first interview in a series to frame the very work and conversation happening within the Studio Connections network, we chatted with Studio Bleu’s own Kimberly Rishi and Leslie Dorman, whose core values for the studio  – “Believe, Lead, Excite and Unite” – define both their history and their future.
